Nginx – Not able to stop nginx server


I am unable to stop nginx server by the command
sudo /etc/init.d/nginx stop

tried killing it through pid

First I check the process which is listening to a port via this

lsof -Pnl +M -i4

Then I kill it by

sudo kill -9 pid

The app is still running!!.
After that when i again do

lsof -Pnl +M -i4

I see that a new process is now listening on the same port, for which
i tried to kill the process.

Did you try stopping the process as root?
