    I installed Nginx and in console got this listing :

    root@aleksander-Aspire-7750G:/home/aleksander# nginx
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to 0.0.0.0:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
    nginx: [emerg] still could not bind()

    Does anyone know how to fix it? or probably I did something wrong.

      Aleksander,
      The message is saying that nginx can’t be bound to port 80 because it is already in use. My guess is that Apache must be installed and running on the same machine. Because I thought that was going to be the case with some readers, I specifically stated “It is assumed that your VM is a fresh install; otherwise, you will have to make sure that there are not any other web servers (such as Apache) running on your machine.“. Stop Apache and try again, then let us know if you need further help.
