The nginx_stage is meant to be run as a privileged process so that it can fork and kill processes owned by other users, as well as read and write to root owned files and directories. It is therefore recommended to run it under a sudo environment.


All options to nginx_stage can be specified as URL-encoded strings to avoid having to escape special characters in the shell.

At any point you can display a quick reference of the capabilities offered by nginx_stage with:
