Business Legions - HOW TO FIX ERROR 99 CANNOT ASSIGN REQUESTED ADDRESS NGINX

I recently received this error message when I manually started my VestaCP Nginx service:

99: Cannot assign requested address nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

I tried searching for a solution on Google but none of them helped. After some digging around, I managed to work out what the issue was. A few weeks ago the hosting provider changed the IP address of the VPS. I ended up changing the VestaCP IP address and also all the websites IP addresses. What I didn’t change was the IP address in the nginx config file (who would have thought to do that?).

The file that needed to be changed was /home/admin/conf/web/nginx.conf
