I just installed nginx with homebrew on a new Macbook Pro and I set everything up with homebrew

  1. PHP56,
  2. MySQL
  3. Redis
  4. CouchDB
  5. Memcached
  6. Postgresql
  7. Nginx --with-passenger ( I left the defaults )

On my iMac it works fine, when I visit localhost:8080 I get the welcome page from nginx.

On my Macbook Pro, I get nothing, any ideas on how to debug what's going on?

I got nginx to load the default by changing the nginx.conf file, server { listen: 8080; server_name:; }

I would like to know what's causing this behavior. Any suggestions?
