Bug Description

I'm running Raring and when I install nginx-light and try to start it I get this error:

  invalid parameter "ipv6_only=on" in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default

I believe it's because the `nginx-light` package doesn't contain the IPv6 module.

Actually, I see this error even with nginx-full installed or with nginx-extras installed.

The changes which prompted this bug were caused by Bug 1132678.

The workaround for this is to modify the sites-available/default file to remove the ipv6 listen statement.

I will set an importance on this bug later, I am not able to do so effectively from my phone.

"ipv6_only=on" must be replaced by "ipv6only=on"
