Start the NGINX server

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

The NGINX server is located in the installdir directory.

This server is disabled by default. To start it, rename the script:

$ cd installdir
$ mv nginx/scripts/ nginx/scripts/

By default, NGINX will be started on port 1234. Check http://localhost:1234 in your browser to see the NGINX welcome page.
