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 superuser.com since this doesn't seem like a programming question. –  Matt Ball Oct 24 '10 at 23:05

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.
