Excelent, thanks a lot!

dennmart commented Apr 3, 2014

Thanks a lot for this, it definitely was a time-saver!

One thing to note, at least from my setup - when installing Nginx using the latest version of Passenger (4.0.40) on Ubuntu 13.10, the PID file was being created by default in /opt/nginx/logs/, while this script is looking for it in /var/run. So I had to modify my nginx.conf (pid /var/run/nginx.pid;) for this script to work properly. Just wanted to include that here in case someone ran into the same issue.
