Following the instructions here:
I get to the point of “Use vim /etc/init.d/nginx to create the start/restart/stop script for nginx” but I can’t get the server to start after creating this file and giving it permission to execute. I just get the error
env: /etc/init.d/nginx: No such file or directory but I can clearly see that the file is where it is supposed to be.
When I try to start nginx directly using
/etc/init.d/nginx start I get the error
-bash: /etc/init.d/nginx: /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory.
What could be causing this?
Be careful what text editors you use on your local Windows computer. Some create Windows-style line endings (
\r\n, CR-LF), which cause problems like this on Unix-like systems such as Linux or Mac OS X.
If you use such an editor, adjust its settings so that it creates files with Unix-style line endings. If the editor has no such setting, you should not be using it at all.
