Did you try “herd status nginx” to see shepherd’s notion of the nginx

Do you use an “opaque” nginx config file, or do you use <nginx-...>

In the former case, the ‘start’ method won’t attempt to read the PID
file (because it cannot be sure it’ll exist), so it’s effectively unable
to track the process.  See comment in ‘nginx-shepherd-service’.

I agree that we could and should improve the error message.  Redirecting
nginx’s stderr so that shepherd clients can see it would be best.
