Custom version of nginx in Ubuntu

Building a custom ( adding a custom plugin )  version of nginx in debian is not a very complicated job:

Create a directory  ( ex test2 ) and change directory to it.

After that do:

apt-get source nginx

in debian directory you should modify rules file , then if necessary  source/include-binaries , add your module in modules directory and modify README.Modules-versions to reflect your changes .

Change back to test2/nginx-1.4.1 directory and run

dpkg-buildpackage -b

If everything works ok and module is configured correctly you should have it ready to be run:

dpkg -i nginx-full_1.4.1-3ubuntu1.3_amd64.deb nginx-common_1.4.1-3ubuntu1.3_all.deb

 

Enjoy.
