Nginx does not start
« on: April 30, 2020, 01:26:47 PM »
Hi guys,

I'm having a problem putting Apache + nginx + varnish to work, nginx does not start showing the following error:

emerg] 49623 # 49623: open () "/usr/local/apache/domlogs/domainserver.error.log" failed (24: Too many open files)

Does anyone have an idea of what it might be? Or have you faced a similar problem?

increase the open file limit for the service or the server.

Hi guys,

I managed to solve.

Just follow these steps:


Create file /etc/systemd/system/nginx.service.d/override.conf with the following contents:
insert
[Service]
LimitNOFILE=65536

Reload systemd daemon with:
systemctl daemon-reload

Add this to Nginx config file:
worker_rlimit_nofile 16384; (has to be smaller or equal to LimitNOFILE set above)

And finally restart Nginx:
systemctl restart nginx
