For those of you who use nginx in rails deployment with RHEL(4 or 5)
based distributions you’ll be happy to know that nginx is now
officially in EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux).
What this means is that for those who use RHEL/Centos/Scientific Linux
or the like can point yum/up2date at the EPEL repository and install
nginx with a quick ‘yum install’ or the up2date equivalent. Hopefully
this will make rails deployment easier for some.
Currently nginx is in the testing repository and will move to the
stable repository at the next quarterly update of RHEL.
