I have installed stable version from ppa

add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
apt-get -y update
apt-get -y install nginx
service nginx start

when I visited localhost:80 I got:

500 Internal Server Error

line from /var/log/nginx/error.log:
2012/08/20 12:30:48 [error] 2151#0: *1 rewrite or internal redirection cycle while internally redirecting to "/index.html", client:, server: localhost, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: "localhost:80"

server block from sites-enabled/default(comments removed)


root /usr/share/nginx/www;
index index.html index.htm;

server_name localhost;

location / {

try_files $uri $uri/ /index.html


location /doc/ {

alias /usr/share/doc/;
autoindex on;
allow ::1;
deny all;



but on my system index.html was installed to /usr/share/nginx/html/index.html

to fix this I had to change root directive in a server block to

root /usr/share/nginx/html;

Feel free to report the issue to the package author. It is inappropriate place to report it here though, as this bug tracking system is about tracking bug in nginx itself and official packages as available from, not arbitrary 3rd party packages.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
