New entry in the english Wiki: Installing recent versions from Debian Repositories (testing and sid)

Hello,

I just added a new entry in the wiki regarding how to track

“recent” Nginx packages trough the Debian repositories.

A lot of people install from sources because stable package is

frozen at 0.4.13, and that’s not really required.

You can check this wiki entry at:

http://wiki.codemongers.com/InstallingFromDebianRepositories

Please feel free to correct any mistakes, my english is far from

perfect (I live in Venezuela), testing the procedure will be great.

Also I am not sure if it should be linked from the GettingStarted

document, what do you think? Right now I added it to the end of the
cookbok.

Best regards,

Some alternative is:

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nginx.list
deb http://deb.wapper.ru/nginx/ ./

(0.5.33 for debian sarge)

PS Great thanks to the creator of this package.
PS2 There are minor differences in the configuration files layout.
PS3 Let’s find some critical security hole in 0.4.*, so debian team is
forced to upgrade :wink:

The idea was to make it easy :wink:

He is a great enthusiast of Nginx, I’ll tell him

Didn’t know.

He really wants the “go” to update the package in stable… but you
know how it is :wink:

By the way, some time ago I had written debian package diff.
I can include it to tarball, but want to avoid updating debian/changelog
for every release. Is it possible ?

It’s easy:

Changes with nginx 0.5.24 06 Jun
2007

*) Security: the "ssl_verify_client" directive did not work if 

request
was made using HTTP/0.9.

Igor,

Great, copying this mail to him :slight_smile: to help push the new versions to
stable.

I’m the Debian maintainer for the nginx package. When Etch was
released, I requested 0.5.13 to be shipped with the stable release,
yet it was denied [1] – Ubuntu, however, did welcome the suggestion.
Now nginx has two Debian Developers (Fabio Tranchitella and myself)
working on it, as well as lots of Ubuntu collaborators, and the last
release solved lots of problems on the package, so hopefully it will
achieve quality again (and Lenny will ship a great version of a great
webserver :slight_smile:

Didn’t know.

wapper.ru package has single nginx.conf, while debian testing version
follows apache idea of sites-available/sites-enabled

Of course for real usage one is overwriting this, so this is not that
important.

Just let me know what you want to include in the official Debian
package, which is also merged into Ubuntu quite frequently. Also check
if your changes aren’t already taken into account in the latest upload
of 0.5.33.
