This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What are you asking, exactly? At any rate, you're probably better off asking at since this doesn't seem like a programming question. – Matt Ball Oct 24 '10 at 23:05
/usr/sbin/update-rc.d -f nginx defaults this doesn't work,but show me an error: update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing – Name Oct 24 '10 at 23:11

update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing is not an error. It's telling you it's using new dependency based booting instead of old sequence-based booting.

If /etc/rc3.d/SXXnginx exists, then it worked. Also, what version of Debian are you using? The -f flag should only be used when removing a startup item, not for adding one. Or are you trying to remove it? Your question could be a little more clear.
