DESCRIPTION

Installs nginx from package OR source code and sets up configuration handling similar to Debian's Apache2 scripts.

REQUIREMENTS

Cookbooks

  • build-essential (for nginx::source)
  • runit (for nginx::source)

Platform

Debian or Ubuntu though may work where 'build-essential' works, but other platforms are untested.

ATTRIBUTES

All node attributes are set under the nginx namespace.

  • version - sets the version to install.
  • dir - configuration dir.
  • log_dir - where logs go.
  • user - user to run as.
  • binary - path to nginx binary.
  • gzip - all attributes under the gzip namespace configure the gzip module.
  • keepalive - whether to use keepalive.
  • keepalive_timeout - set the keepalive timeout.
  • worker_processes - number of workers to spawn.
  • worker_connections - number of connections per worker.
  • server_names_hash_bucket_size

The following attributes are set at the 'normal' node level via the nginx::source recipe.

  • install_path - for nginx::source, sets the --prefix installation.
  • src_binary - for nginx::source, sets the binary location.
  • configure_flags - for nginx::source, an array of flags to use for compilation.

USAGE

Provides two ways to install and configure nginx.

  • Install via native package (nginx::default)
  • Install via compiled source (nginx::source)

Both recipes implement configuration handling similar to the Debian Apache2 site enable/disable.

There's some redundancy in that the config handling hasn't been separated from the installation method (yet), so use only one of the recipes.

Some of the attributes mentioned above are only set in the nginx::source recipe. They can be overridden by setting them via a role in override_attributes.
