Increase limit for open files:

    ulimit -n 65536
  2. Restart the services:

    #service sw-engine restart
    #service sw-cp-server restart
  3. If Nginx alredy service stuck:

    a. Kill alll nginx processes using the below command:

    # killall nginx

    b. Restart nginx service:

    # systemctl start nginx.service
  4. Disable and re-enale nginx using nginxmng:

    # /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/nginxmng -d
