My point was that you can start the service as root, or set the user to root in nginx.conf. It’s confusing. Two ways. If I’m deliberately starting the service as root, why would I need to set the config file to indicate so?

Second, setting the nginx.conf directive to user root, whilst using the default www user as startup, only coughs up an error indicating the directive was ignored.

A lot of this makes little sense.

So the only way around this as I see it is to start up as root, because I’ve tried absolutely everything, and nothing is getting rid of this nginx.pid permissions error.

OK then.
