Install Nginx

the nginx guide here
is quite confusing for linux n00b.

so this one might give clearer picture for n00b:

getting libraries:

yum based:

yum install pcre-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel

or in debian:
apt-get install libpcre3-dev libssl-dev zlib1g-dev

or manually download the sources:

get latest nginx source from

sh configure --with-openssl=~/openssl-0.9.8g --with-zlib=~/zlib-1.2.3 --with-pcre=~/pcre-7.4 --with-http_dav_module --with-http_realip_module --with-http_flv_module  --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_sub_module --with-mail  --with-mail_ssl_module  
sudo make install
