When I rebuilding nginx I am running these commands

./configure --add-module=$HOME/nginx_mod_h264_streaming-2.2.7 --sbin-path=/usr/local/sbin --with-debug
sudo make install

Should the --sbin-path point to my current nginx sbin directory or the actual binary file in the sbin directory?


Based on this page - It looks like it wants the nginx sbin directory - ./configure --help |grep -i 'sbin' should yield some assistance.

  • Looks like binary file for me --sbin-path=PATH set path to the nginx binary file – Matthew Hui Dec 2 '11 at 22:46

If you run ./configure --help and grep for sbin-path, it will tell you for certain, but it specifies the directory where the make install procedure will put any files that would normally go in /sbin.
