How to restart the Nginx service on LEMP servers?

Not sure why many people Google how to do this, so we are making a FAQ page. But this is generally easy and well known in LEMP stacks to restart any module service you simply use the command “sudo service nginx restart” or substitute the “nginx” with the relevant Ubuntu package, such as “mysql” or otherwise.

Usually there is no need to manually restart Nginx in SlickStack because whenever you run an install script (etc) it will automatically restart Nginx and other services for you.
