    No you don't need to reinstall php.

    Check the log file as at it may fail to update.....

    as folks mentioned no need to upgrade PHP too when updating nginx

    To troubleshoot, you need to check the the nginx upgrade log at /root/centminlogs and instructions under Sharing logs and errors heading for using or Gists to share a sanitised version of the contents of the nginx_upgrade.log log. You can see full details at How to troubleshoot Centmin Mod initial install issues

    also what's output of
    Code (Text):
    nginx -t

    when you run menu option 4 there's a nginx upgrade log timestamped at /root/centminlogs

    if you type this command it lists all logs in date ascending order so latest log at bottom
    Code (Text):
    ls -lArt /root/centminlogs

    so copy the entire contents of latest nginx_upgrade log to or

    you can use grep to filter the logs, i.e. look for nginx_upgrade in log name
    Code (Text):
    ls -lahrt /root/centminlogs/ | grep nginx_upgrade
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root 3.2M Oct 11 15:55 centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-155345_nginx_upgrade.log
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root 672K Oct 11 22:06 centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-220515_nginx_upgrade.log

    So the last nginx upgrade log was named centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-220515_nginx_upgrade.log and located at /root/centminlogs/centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-220515_nginx_upgrade.log

    then use cat command to output the contents of that log

    clear your ssh window buffer/screen and type
    Code (Text):
    cat /root/centminlogs/centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-220515_nginx_upgrade.log

    then select and copy and paste output to or file to share. If your SSH client's scroll buffer isn't large enough using cat might not output the entire log file contents, so you may need to download the log and use local text editor to open and copy and paste.

    so only need content of one specific log, in this case most recent nginx_upgrade.log log
