Firstly I setup nginx and uwsgi via apt-get.

And,I add the line to nginx conf file(/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf) like below line;

server {

 listen 80;
 server_name <replace with your hostname>;

 #Replace paths for real deployments...
 access_log /tmp/access.log;
 error_log /tmp/error.log;

 location / {
 include uwsgi_params;

I had a error;

Starting nginx: [emerg]: open() "/etc/nginx/uwsgi_params" failed (2: No such file or directory) in /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf:11
configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

If I add uwsgi_params file from uwsgi's source;I had a simple error.

Append the output of apt-cache search uwsgi? dpkg -l | grep uwsgi to your question. – quanta Sep 22 '12 at 10:14

Add these two lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (you can also choose a mirror near you) :

deb squeeze all
deb-src squeeze all

(Optional) if you want to install PHP 5.4 on Debian 6.0 “Squeeze”, add these two lines too :

deb squeeze-php54 all
deb-src squeeze-php54 all

Then fetch the appropriate GnuPG key

cat dotdeb.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Run apt-get update


apt-get install nginx-full

but why? What is the difference b/w nginx and nginx-full? – zengr Oct 28 '12 at 19:46
Okay, so got the problem. I was running a old version of nginx. Getting a newer version got me uwsgi module preinstalled for nginx. – zengr Oct 28 '12 at 20:03
