This module implements a progress upload ala Lighttpd mod_uploadprogress
for nginx. It monitors RFC1867 uploads sent to upstream servers and can

This module is delivered as is (no guarantee of any kind) under the BSD
license with the following caveats and warnings:
- this software has never been tested under load. It only passed a few
- it is not intended to be deployed on production systems.
- when compiled with --with-debug, this module will produce high number
of log messages.
More information on the wiki page I just created:
The code is available as an attachment of the aforementionned page.
nginx_uploadprogress_module has been compiled/tested with Nginx 0.6.1,
0.6.12 and 0.6.13.
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
For usage, configuration and examples, please see the wiki page or the
There are still some missing functionnalities, like retaining
information about a finished upload for a few seconds to be able to
serve to report upload request that the upload has finished…
