Nginx : Unit nginx.service is masked

Complied a Nginx server to the latest version and also add Brotli support, but get the following error message:

$ sudo service nginx status
* nginx.service
   Loaded: masked (/dev/null; bad)
   Active: inactive (dead)

$ sudo service nginx restart
Failed to restart nginx.service: Unit nginx.service is masked.

Solution

To fix the problem, or error, just unmask with the command:

$ sudo systemctl unmask nginx.service
