I want to install the extra nginx version nginx-full package from debian backports - but when I try to run the install command it says that the package is not found.

$ apt-get -t squeeze-backports install nginx-full

I have followed the backports instructions. I want the Limit Requests / Limit Zone modules not available in the standard apt-get install nginx install.

There don't appear to be any nginx package backports for squeeze, yet:… – SmallClanger Mar 14 '11 at 17:49

Apparently, there are no nginx packages on backports yet (search result here)

Update 2012-11-29, courtesy of @white_gecko:

It appears that the packages are now available.

Hmmm, that would explain it. I just assumed they existed because the install page lists squeeze as the current repo and sid is where the packages are. – Xeoncross Mar 14 '11 at 18:07
Looks like dotdeb has my back: – Xeoncross Mar 14 '11 at 18:15
