Gracefully Restart Nginx Web Server After Changes Made In a Config File

Posted on in Categories , , last updated December 6, 2012

I know how to gracefully restart Apache web server under Unix like operating system. I made changes to nginx.conf. How do I gracefully restart Nginx web server? How do I make changes in a Nginx server config file to take effect without restarting the Nginx server itself without interrupting users’ current session?
