I’m proud to announce the availability of the version 0.6 of the
nginx_upload_progress_module. This version fixes one high traffic bug
and is a recommended upgrade.
This version seems now stable to be used in production.
The release is available in the nginx wiki page or directly from my git
Changes since v0.5:
- fixed crash when cleaning uploads (thanks to Vladimir Getmanshchuk for
his bug report).
This module implements a progress upload ala Lighttpd mod_uploadprogress
for nginx. It monitors RFC1867 uploads sent to upstream servers and can
serve special JSON response containing information about the upload
progress on request.
This module doesn’t implement a RFC1867 parser and client code. As such
I consider this module as a temporary hack until Igor S. implements
a full client body filter chain into Nginx.
This module is delivered as is (no guarantee of any kind) under the BSD
license with the following caveats and warnings:
- when compiled with --with-debug, this module will produce high
of log messages.
More information on the wiki page:
and the git repository:
The code is available as an attachment of the aforementionned page.
nginx_uploadprogress_module has been compiled/tested with Nginx 0.6.x,
and 0.7.59. The legacy 0.5.x versions are not supported,
please upgrade your nginx installation to the current stable (0.7.x).
download the Nginx sources from http://nginx.net/ and unpack it.
build Nginx: change to the directory which contains the Nginx
sources, and run the configuration script making sure to add the path
to the nginx_uploadprogress_module sources using the --add-module
$ ./configure --add-module=/path/to/nginx_uploadprogress_module/
Now you can build and install the software:
and as root:
$ make install
