Apologies, but I'm a relative newbie to RPi & nginx.
I was having an issue with nginx on my Raspberry Pi 3B, and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to remove and re-install it.
Before I removed it the files were located where I expected them to be, ie /etc/nginx. After I re-installed the files are seemingly all over the place (/usr/lib/nginx, /var/lib/nginx etc).
I Googled for articles on installing nginx on RPi and all seem to indicate the same result, i.e. the setup I had originally.
Am I missing something?
*** UPDATE 2021-01-21 *** In answer to some questions:
- To remove & re-install nginx I did the following;
sudo apt remove nginx sudo apt install nginx
I also tried;
sudo apt purge nginx sudo apt install nginx

Looks like my RPi3B is running Stretch.

Not sure if that is part of the problem.
The Pi is only running Pi-Hole for my home network, so I could backup my Pi-Hole config, do a clean install of the latest Pi OS image, install Pi-Hole and restore the config. It's a bit of a sledgehammer approach but should restore me to a nice clean setup ready to start again (and clear out some of the old dross that I had previously partially installed and never really used).
