    Getting notifications from WHM:

    I installed this on a new cpanel server using below method:

    tar xf nginxadmin.tar
    cd publicnginx
    ./nginxinstaller install
    Does this technically install nginx server itself, or just an admin panel?

    How do I fix the downed service? In nginxcp admin panel, it shows up and running, green. But in server status in WHM, shows down.

    Can someone please recommend a good configuration for a shared / reseller hosting environment? I'm running with these specs:

    Dual Hexcore Xeon
    32GB RAM
    SSD Drives
    Apache 2.4, PHP 5.6, Cloudlinux + Cagefs, suPHP

    I found these online:
