NGINX Homebrew Tap

This tap is designed specifically for a custom build of NGINX with more module options.

How do I install these formule (NGINX Modules)?

Once the tap is installed, you can install nginx-full with optional additional modules:

brew tap denji/nginx
brew install nginx-full --with-upload-module

For a list of available configuration options run:

brew options nginx-full
brew info nginx-full

What about conflicts?

You are free to install this version alongside a current install of NGINX from Homebrew/homebrew if you wish. However, they cannot be linked at the same time. To switch between them use brew's built in linking system.

brew unlink nginx
brew link nginx-full


brew help, man brew or check Homebrew's documentation.


Please see the contributing guide.
