I ran this code:
  1. bash <(curl -f -L -sS https://ngxpagespeed.com/install) \ --nginx-version latest
  2. ln -s /usr/local/nginx/conf/ /etc/nginx
  3. ln -s /usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx /usr/sbin/nginx
  4. vi /etc/init.d/nginx and inserted this script:https://www.nginx.com/resources/wiki/start/topics/examples/redhatnginxinit/
  5. systemctl start nginx +  systemctl enable nginx + # systemctl status nginx
  6. Added on my nginx.conf this script:
    # Pagespeed main settings
    
    pagespeed on;
    pagespeed FileCachePath /var/ngx_pagespeed_cache;
    
    
    # Ensure requests for pagespeed optimized resources go to the pagespeed
    # handler and no extraneous headers get set.
    
    location ~ "\.pagespeed\.([a-z]\.)?[a-z]{2}\.[^.]{10}\.[^.]+" { add_header "" ""; }
    location ~ "^/ngx_pagespeed_static/" { }
    location ~ "^/ngx_pagespeed_beacon" { }
and receive this messagge:
nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "pagespeed" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/examplepagespeed.com.conf:12

this is my output:
root@centOS8:/etc/nginx/conf.d# 2>&1 nginx -V | tr -- - '\n' | grep _module

Hi
You have 2 nginx installations, 1 version 1.14.1 and other version 1.18.0. Your system is starting the cersion 1.14.1 that don´t have the pagespeed module, so this throw the error that th directive pagespeed in your nginx.confile is unkow.
The step 4 is unneeded, nginx is started/stoped with systemd not by init ( you started nginx and make it enabled in step 5)
The systemd service files for nginx are pointing to the nginx version 1.14.1
