Update nginx with Ubuntu PPA

I am upgrading nginx to latest 1.4.1 using PPA. repository.

  1. After install, do I need to restart it manually, or it is restarted
    automatically?
  2. Is reload enough for the nginx upgrade? Or do I need to restart or
    stop/start?

Thanks.

If you are using the apt-get upgrade or aptitude upgrade commands, the
service will be restarted for you.

You may want to run sudo nginx -t to check for errors.

This might be a little off topic, but how can one upgrade nginx on
ubuntu
with the official ppa via apt without having a restart of nginx but an
upgrade instead? (/etc/init.d/nginx upgrade)

Please note, there is no “official ppa”.

Official nginx repositories for Ubuntu (and other Linux ditros) are
here:

Yes, there is no official PPA.

The PPA I and many others use is unofficial, but seems to be well
maintained (thanks for that, whoever you are).

Someone wanting to use the same unofficial repository may execute the
following:

add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
apt-get update
apt-get install nginx

If you want to use the devel version, then replace ppa:nginx/stable
with ppa:nginx/development

If you don’t have add-apt-repository, then apt-get install
python-software-properties.

You can download and extract the package and replace all files.
But you will have to load the new binary at one time.

I might be wrong - but I suppose you can do that gracefully

Oh, I meant your repositories but named it ppa. Sorry for that.

Will there be a way of having an upgrade instead of an automatic restart
in
case of binary/package updates in the future?

Our package already calls ‘/etc/init.d/nginx upgrade’ on update
