    So I installed the latest server updates today on the server and nginx would not start, the error is:
    "nginx: [emerg] bind() to failed (98: Address already in use)"

    I did a search and found that "fuser -n tcp 80" fixes the problem. Now it seems that I have to run this command after every reboot.

    Any ideas?

    Config looks like this:
    server {
            listen 80;
            #listen [::]:80 default_server;

    Is there anything else (e.g. Apache) listening on port 80 already?

    Not that I know of. I never installed Apache. Everything was fine until I did an update, whatever packages that were updated within this past week caused it.

    I just noticed it says starting "Apache2" I have no idea where or how Apache got on this server. I checked my command history, I never installed it. Would an update install Apache or add it to the startup? How can I get rid of a startup program that's not really installed?

    Package apache2 is not installed, so not removed

    Ok, this command fixed my problem: "sudo update-rc.d -f apache2 remove"
