I currently have Nginx installed via the instructions on the Nginx site:
nginx=stable sudo su - add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/$nginx apt-get update apt-get install
I have configured Nginx and it has been running great for a little while. Now, I want to add some custom modules--say, the Upload Progress Module. The instructions for this module say to add
--add-module=path/to/nginx_uploadprogress_module to your
./configure command. However, I did not install Nginx from source.
What is the best way to handle this situation? Is it possible to tell APT to compile from source and pass options to
./configure? Can I compile over the existing installation? What about paths--how do I make them match? Or do I have to remove the APT managed version and start over?
