Unable to start nginx: (98: Address already in use) on plesk server

The following error occurs on attempt to start nginx service:

#systemctl start nginx
(98) Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80

Apache is listening service listen on 80 port:

#netstat -tulpn | grep :80
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 7424/httpd

In case IP address is used by nginx, just kill the hung nginx process.

Apache is configured to listen on port 80 in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file:

#grep Listen /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Listen 0.0.0.0:80

Log into the server via ssh.

Use any text editor to correct the Apache configuration files:

Before:

#grep -R Listen /etc/httpd/
/var/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:Listen 0.0.0.0:80

After:

#grep -R Listen /etc/httpd/
/var/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Listen 0.0.0.0:8080

Now restart Apache service:

#systemctl restart httpd

Time to regenerate web configuration:

#plesk repair web -y

Now start nginx service again:

#systemctl start nginx .
