Nginx enable website command

We all know how to enable a website using apache on linux. I'm pretty sure that we all agree on using the a2ensite command.

Unfortunately there is no default equivalent command comes with Nginx, but it did happens that I installed some package on ubuntu that allowed me to enable/disable sites and list them.

The problem is I don't remember the name of this package.

Anybody knows what I'm talking about?

Please tell me name of this package and the command name.

 

Another method is just to rename the site's config file to something that ends without .conf

E.g. sudo mv mysite.conf mysite.conf.disabled

Then reload nginx, and that vhost will fall back to the default.

Just create this script /usr/bin/nginx_modsite and make it executable.

#!/bin/bash

##
#  File:
#    nginx_modsite
#  Description:
#    Provides a basic script to automate enabling and disabling websites found
#    in the default configuration directories:
#      /etc/nginx/sites-available and /etc/nginx/sites-enabled
#    For easy access to this script, copy it into the directory:
#      /usr/local/sbin
#    Run this script without any arguments or with -h or --help to see a basic
#    help dialog displaying all options.

# Core Piece

case "$1" in
    -e|--enable)    ngx_enable_site;;
    -d|--disable)   ngx_disable_site;;

    -h|--help)  ngx_help;;
    *)      ngx_error "No Options Selected" 1; ngx_help;;
esac

How it works:

To list all the sites

$ sudo nginx_modsite -l

To enable site "test_website"

$ sudo nginx_modsite -e test_website

To disable site "test_website"

$ sudo nginx_modsite -d test_website

If you have installed the nginx package from the Ubuntu repositories, you will have two directories.

/etc/nginx/sites-enabled and /etc/nginx/sites-available.

In the main nginx configuration, /etc/nginx/nginx.conf, you have the following line:

include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*.conf;

So basically to list all available virtualhosts, you can run the following command:

ls /etc/nginx/sites-available

To activate one of them, run the following command:

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/www.example.org.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

The scripts that comes with Apache is basically just simple shell wrappers that does something similar as above.

After linking the files, remember to run sudo service nginx reloadservice nginx reload
