[SOLVED] nginx times out at reboot

After a reboot, nginx takes a bit apparently and fails to start:

journalctl -b -u nginx
May 04 23:04:21 xxx systemd[1]: Starting A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server...
May 04 23:05:52 xxx systemd[1]: nginx.service: start operation timed out. Terminating.
May 04 23:05:52 xxx systemd[1]: nginx.service: Failed with result 'timeout'.
May 04 23:05:52 xxx systemd[1]: Failed to start A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server.

If I start it manually then when I login (it's a server), then it starts without a problem. It seems it's waiting on something not available yet at startup. Are we sure the .service dependencies are correctly setup? (I'm using the .service provided by arch)

Re: [SOLVED] nginx times out at reboot

The network device probably is not yet ready at that point (why here).
Delay the server start or try the 'network-online.target' (that is 'blocking/waiting' until a connection is available).

Re: [SOLVED] nginx times out at reboot

Normally, with the `After` clause, it should waiting for `network-online`, shouldn't it?

[Unit]
Description=A high performance web server and a reverse proxy server
After=network.target network-online.target nss-lookup.target

[Service]
Type=forking
PIDFile=/run/nginx.pid
PrivateDevices=yes
SyslogLevel=err

ExecStart=/usr/bin/nginx -g 'pid /run/nginx.pid; error_log stderr;'
ExecReload=/usr/bin/nginx -s reload
KillMode=mixed

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Re: [SOLVED] nginx times out at reboot

Yes, but being 'online' probably doesn't necessarily mean that all requirements of your nginx server are met. There might be additional interfaces involved, etc. Or maybe the interface goes up/down several times on bootup. Only the logs might know.

I would simply add a 'Restart='  to the unit so it tries multiple times to bring the server up.

Re: [SOLVED] nginx times out at reboot

I think I solved with the following override.conf (in /etc/systemd/system/nginx.d)

[Unit]
Wants=network-online.target
