How to start nGinx?

Preious regime created a reverse proxy on Ubuntu 10.  When it had to be rebooted for maintenance none of the reverse proxy function worked any more.  I believe it is using nginx to do the reverse proxy as they used that most of the time on their other ubuntu host for web services.  How can I start up nginx and verify that that it is mechanism that had been doing the reverse proxying?  It was taking traffic at 443 and forwarding to 80.  Thanks.

Normally nginix starts automatically. But if you want to manually start and stop it you would use tihs script:

/etc/init.d/nginx. start

/etc/init.d/nginx stop

if you can't get it started please post related lines form


and also

netstat -anpt

output here.

Thank you very much for the recipe to get this going on startup (which the original admins should have done.)  For the time being I was able to get it working properly via manual restart:  

sudo ./usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx

When the furor dies down I'll put in the auto start like it should be.
