service nginx configtest always returns zero exit code

nginx -V: nginx version: nginx/1.8.0


This issue affects many users who mistakenly assume that configtest returns a useful error code.

# nginx -t && echo $?
nginx: [emerg] invalid parameter "server_name" in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/piwik:5
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed
# service nginx configtest && echo $?
 * Testing nginx configuration                              [fail]
# /etc/init.d/nginx configtest && echo $?
 * Testing nginx configuration                              [fail]

The version is 1.8.0 but I can't select that in the dropdown here on trac.

The "nginx -t" command returns useful error code, and init scripts as shipped in official packages do the same. The problem you are seeing is probably in the init script you are using, not in nginx.
