How to remove Nginx on linux in Vesta control panel

by | Apr 5, 2021

Are you trying to remove Nginx on Linux in the Vesta control panel? We can help you do it.

Here at Bobcares, we have seen several such Nginx-related queries as part of our Server Management Services for web hosts and online service providers.

Today we will take a look at how to remove Nginx on Linux in the Vesta control panel.

 

Remove Nginx on RHEL/CentOS in Vesta Control Panel

Here are the steps that we follow to remove the Nginx from RHEL/CentOS

1. First, we stop the Nginx service. For that, we run the below command.

# service nginx stop

2. Next, we remove the Nginx package by running the below command.

# yum remove nginx

3. After that, we change the vesta configuration. For that, we execute the below commands.

# cd /usr/local/vesta/conf
# sed -i “/PROXY_*/d” vesta.conf
# sed -i “s/8080/80/” vesta.conf
# sed -i “s/8443/443/” vesta.conf

4. Then we change httpd configuration by running below commands.

# cd /etc/httpd/conf.d
# sed -i “s/8080/80/” *.conf
# sed -i “s/8443/443/” *.conf

5. Finally, we rebuild vhost configs

# for user in $(v-list-sys-users plain); do v-rebuild-web-domains $user; done

 

Remove Nginx on Debian/Ubuntu in Vesta Control Panel

1. First, we stop Nginx service by running the below command.

# service nginx stop

2. Next, we remove Nginx package by running the below command.

# apt-get remove nginx

3. After that, we change vesta configuration

# cd /usr/local/vesta/conf
# sed -i “/PROXY_*/d” vesta.conf
# sed -i “s/8080/80/” vesta.conf
# sed -i “s/8443/443/” vesta.conf

4. Then we change httpd configuration. For that, we run the below commands.

# cd /etc/apache2/conf.d
# sed -i “s/8080/80/” *.conf
# sed -i “s/8443/443/” *.conf

5. Finally, we rebuild vhost configs

# for user in $(v-list-sys-users plain); do v-rebuild-web-domains $user; done

 

Nginx error on Vesta Control Panel installation

While trying to install VestaCP on Ubuntu with previously installed Nginx, an error occurs when executing the below command:

bash vst-install.sh

Here is the error message that appears:

Following packages are already installed:
nginx

It is highly recommended to remove them before proceeding.
If you want to force installation run this script with -f option:
Example: bash vst-install-ubuntu.sh –force

Now let’s take a look at how our Support Engineers resolve this error.

First, we remove Nginx using the following commands:

sudo apt-get remove nginx
sudo apt-get purge nginx
sudo apt-get autoremove

If Nginx and all its configuration files are removed, we either use the -f flag mentioned by the installer or rebuild the droplet from the control panel using a stock OS image.

However, with any web hosting control panel, it is always recommended to start from a completely clean server rather than trying to clean it or remove packages.
