A quick installation of NginX with a standard configuration. This is by no mean optimal. NginX is a lightweight web-server, which also could be used for loadbalancing, cache server, and it offers many nice features that could be used to provide different services.
Portsnap installation of NginX:
# Keep portsnap up to date before installing. portsnap fetch update #Enter the NginX portsnap folder. cd /usr/ports/www/nginx # Compilation config for NginX and the same for the required packages. # Accept default settings unless you have read the manual and you are sure # what modules to add to the build. make config-recursive # Install everything / also compiles all extra features selected and clean up make install clean # start nginx at boot echo 'nginx_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
Latest version just by compiling it on your own:
# Enter the tmp folder cd /tmp # Replace the x.y.z with the latest stable version # First we have to install pcre, won't work with pcre2. # (ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/programming/pcre/) fetch ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/programming/pcre/pcre-x.y.tar.gz # Un-tar the file tar -zxf pcre-x.y.tar.gz # Setup the conf for the compile ./configure # Compile make # Install the files make install # Delete temp files cd /tmp | rm -R /tmp/pcre-x.y/ | rm /tmp/pcre-x.y.tar.gz # Download the latest version of Nginx Directly from the site (http://nginx.org/en/download.html) fetch http://nginx.org/download/nginx-x.y.z.tar.gz # Un-tar the file tar -zxf nginx-x.y.z.tar.gz # Enter the folder cd nginx-x.y.z # Configure before the compile (options here: http://nginx.org/en/docs/configure.html). ./configure --sbin-path=/usr/local/sbin/nginx --conf-path=/usr/local/etc/nginx/nginx.conf --pid-path=/var/run/nginx.pid --with-cc-opt="-I /usr/local/include" --with-ld-opt="-L /usr/local/lib" --with-http_stub_status_module # Compile make # Copy the files into the correct folder and so on. make install # Remove the un-needed files, this will auto delete if you have installed # freebsd 11.0 with the security option 'empty temp upon reboot' cd /tmp | rm -R /tmp/nginx-x.y.z/ | rm /tmp/nginx-x.y.z.tar.gz # Create this directory if it doesn't exist mkdir /usr/local/etc/rc.d #Download the nginx boot script and chmod it with +x cd /usr/local/etc/rc.d | fetch --no-verify-peer https://lyxi.ga/wp-content/uploads/nginx | chmod +x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nginx #Adding NginX into rc.conf to get it to start upon boot. echo 'nginx_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
