Wishlist item - store configure options


#1

just wanted to wishlist this…

it would be really neat if one could call something like…

nginx --install_options

or something similar, which would just list all the arguments to ./
configure when nginx was originally installed

i just had to battle with updating an install on a box that wasn’t
built by me, and it wasn’t fun.


#2

-V.


#3

nginx -V

or

/path/to/nginx -V

Christmas came 360 days early this year!

man nginx only lists this:

OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below:

     -c <configuration file> Specifies a particular configuration

file for nginx to load.
-v Show version of program.
-t Tests nginx configuration

So i guess what I really need is a documents update :wink:

There is no official manpage for nginx. It’s probably something
added by your package builder, ask him for update.

Official documentation for command-line switches is here (in
russian):

http://sysoev.ru/nginx/docs/switches.html

Corresponding english wiki page is:

p.s. As for Christmas, the reason seems clear. Here in Russia we
celebrate Christmas at January 7. :slight_smile:
