OpenResty is a full-fledged web application server by bundling the standard nginx core, lots of 3rd-party nginx modules, as well as most of their external dependencies.
This bundle is maintained by Yichun Zhang (agentzh).
Because most of the nginx modules are developed by the bundle maintainers, it can ensure that all these modules are played well together.
The bundled software components are copyrighted by the respective copyright holders.
The homepage for this project is on openresty.org.
For Bundle Maintainers
The bundle's source is at the following git repository:
To reproduce the bundle tarball, just do
at the top of the bundle source tree.
Please note that you may need to install some extra dependencies, like
On Fedora 22, for example, installing the dependencies
is as simple as running the following commands:
sudo dnf install perl dos2unix mercurial
In additional to the standard nginx core features, this bundle also supports the following:
syntax: resolver address ... [valid=time] [ipv6=on|off] [local=on|off|path]
context: http, stream, server, location
Similar to the
in standard nginx core with additional support for parsing additional resolvers from the
local=on, the standard path of
/etc/resolv.conf will be used. You may also specify arbitrary
path to be used for parsing, for example:
local=off, parsing will be disabled (this is the default).
This feature is not available on Windows platforms.
