How to shutdown nginx on MAC OS X ?

To shut down Nginx on macOS, you can use the following commands in your terminal. Please note that you might need administrative privileges (sudo) to stop Nginx, depending on how it was installed.

  1. Open Terminal: You can find Terminal in the Utilities folder within the Applications folder, or you can use Spotlight Search (Cmd + Space, then type “Terminal”).
  2. Check if Nginx is running:perlCopy code
    ps aux | grep nginx
    This command will list any Nginx processes that are currently running. If you see any processes related to Nginx, note the process IDs (PIDs) as you’ll need them to stop Nginx.
  3. Stop Nginx using the PID(s):bashCopy code
    sudo kill -s QUIT <PID>
    Replace <PID> with the actual process ID of Nginx that you want to stop. If there are multiple Nginx processes, you’ll need to run the sudo kill -s QUIT command for each of them.
