Nginx 1.6.0 has been released on April 24th 2014 (exactly one year after 1.4.0), incorporating many new features/enhancements developed in the 1.5.x branch :

As a consequence, packages of Nginx 1.6.0 are now available for both Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” and Debian 6.0 “Squeeze” (amd64/i386). Please note that :

For more details about which modules are included in the different Nginx flavors, just have to look at this document.

I hope you’ll love these new packages and, if so, feel free to show your support.

thx for ths build, you may add a warning, as error_log syslog is no longer supported.

not sure if this has anything to do with this particular package but after the update nginx failed to start. service nginx stop/start didn’t help, only after I did a killall -9 nginx followed by service nginx start did it finally work out…

I’m getting a 502 Bad Gateway for every php files after upgrade from 1.4.7 to 1.6

I’m using PHP5-fpm

Where can I find the build instruction for the installation of nginx?
I need to add more modules then the default can offer.

Please help.

If I want to change nginx installation from nginx-full to nginx-extras, should I uninstall first or just install nginx-extras directly?


Is there any chance of having ngx_http_auth_digest included in a future version of nginx-extras?
