Thread: Nginx from source?

  1. #1

    Question Nginx from source?

    I found the nginx package in download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/http/openSUSE_13.2 and installed it. However, I need to authenticate against a database, and that requires a couple of modules that have to be built in.
    What I'm wondering is if there are any OpenSUSE-related things I need to do in regards to setting up a build, or is simply running the configure script (without modifying it) and passing the additional modules sufficient--and in the end after building the install command will place everything correctly?

    Probably the easiest thing to do is to branch the project in OBS and then
    tweak it to your needs.

    Then the build service can build it for you, and you don't have to worry
    about build dependencies or the toolchain.

    If you want to build it locally, there's nothing really specific you need
    to do other than ensure the proper -devel packages are installed, and
    running configure will give you an idea what you need to install.

    Of course you also need the build tools and all those requirements.

    Are you sure the modules aren't already built in or otherwise available?

    I don't know about nginx, but many of the apps I've seen and used have the functionally pre-compiled but not enabled by default.
    Also, a search of all nginx packages might turn up something
    http://software.opensuse.org/search?...enSUSE%3ZA13.2

    I might be surprised, but I'd consider db auth packages a common need.
