    Hello Annie,

    Hope you are doing well!

    To manage the Nginx server, you can use the following commands:

    Start: This command is used to start the Nginx server. The command to start Nginx is as follows:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl start nginx
    Stop: This command is used to stop the Nginx server. The command to stop Nginx is as follows:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl stop nginx

    Restart: This command is used to restart the Nginx server. The command to restart Nginx is as follows:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl restart nginx
    Regarding how often you should restart Nginx, it depends on your server's usage and the type of applications you're running. Generally, Nginx is designed to run continuously without frequent restarts. However, there might be cases where you need to restart Nginx, such as when you make changes to the server configuration or after installing updates.

    If you're experiencing issues with the server or application, it might be helpful to restart Nginx to see if it resolves the issue. In general, you should only restart Nginx when necessary to avoid potential downtime for your users.

    The reload command is a safer alternative to the restart command because it will reload the configuration file and apply any changes without interrupting the service.

    Here's the command to reload the Nginx configuration:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl reload nginx
    However, If you're experiencing issues with the server or application, it might be helpful to restart Nginx to see if it resolves the issue. In general, you should only restart Nginx when necessary to avoid potential downtime for your users.
