    I have been using ISPconfig for quite a bit , everything working fine . I've started testing some streaming services that require Nginx installation. I have proceeded with the installation , after the installation ended , checking got 2 error :
    1) The site didn't load
    after reboot
    2) The site shows the welcome page of Apache.
    I was not able to restart Apache and neither Nginx . Definitely a port conflict .

    I have been googling around and I have found the guide '' The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 18.04 (Nginx, MySQL, PHP, Postfix, BIND, Dovecot, Pure-FTPD and ISPConfig 3.1) ''.
    I have been reading and following the process and comparing it with the installation that I'm having right now , from this guide '' The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) with Apache, PHP, MySQL, PureFTPD, BIND, Postfix, Dovecot and ISPConfig 3.1 ''

    Basically it's the same , except from the point 8 : ''Install Nginx, PHP 7.2 (PHP-FPM), and Fcgiwrap''

    My question it's here :
    1)With the actual installation that I'm having right now , is there anyway to implement the Nginx without reinstalling ISPconfig ?
    2)What are the missing features on the Nginx installation ?
    3) Is there any complete installation that include everything ? ( the most complete one with all the feature )

    Thank you for your time

    ISPConfig works for nginx or apache2 web server out of box. No official support for the mix of both.

    There is a way to convert ISPConfig apache2 web server to nginx, do search for it if you wish to convert without reinstalling the whole ISPConfig server.

    You could install another ISPConfig host with nginx, adding it to your existing ISPConfig setup. So you have a multiserver setup. There was recently a thread in this forum by someone who did that.
    I believe this is the reasonable way to get both Apache and NGINX as web servers.
