After running an ASP.NET vNext project on my local machine I was trying to figure out how I can run it on nginx as it looks to be a recommended choice

Following jsinh's blog, I installed it using:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nginx -y

I was trying to understand whether it is working or not by using:

ifconfig eth0 | grep inet | awk '{ print $2}'

After running

sudo service nginx start
sudo service nginx stop

How to verify if nginx is running or not?
