Are you looking to configure Drupal with nginx Server? Here is how you build nginx from source with php upload progress module in ubuntu.

Create a directory nginx-src and change to that directory

mkdir nginx-src
cd nginx-src

Then download the source package via apt

apt-get source nginx-full

If everything went successful, you get the nginx directory. inside the nginx directory, you have to modify the rules file in the directory debian in the debian/rules file add the configuration option


to the session config.status.full

(Note: The source package with ubuntu already includes the nginx-upload-progress module in the debian/modules directory, so you do not have to download the module separately)

Before compiling the package, we need to make sure every dependency libraries are available for compiling nginx with the command

sudo apt-get build-dep nginx-full

(In ubuntu I found that the dependency on libgd2-noxpm-dev conflicts with php5-gd package. So if you want to keep php5-gd with nginx you have to edit the debian/control file and change the dependency on libgd2-noxpm-dev to libgd2-xpm-dev)

After setting up all the dependencies, execute the command

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

to build the debs required.

The deb files will be created in the nginx-src directory. You can then install the package with the command

sudo dpkg -i nginx-full_1.0.5-1_i386.deb

You can verify whether the upload-progress library is enabled with the command

sudo nginx -V

The public's ignorance is their misbegotten gain, and any genuine response is muted and rare. This page, for example, touches on only part of the issue, leaving out critical weaknesses. How, for example, do you protect thumbdrives from the most likely source of infection when plugging into a public internet cafe computer (most of which lack good firewalls)? Holding down the shift key is a method already obsolete perhaps, since activating the shift key when loading a thumbdrive simply locks the host computer. Best response to this problem is to buy a WRITE PROTECT thumbdrive so only you can write on it and no one else. Everything else, including most of what's written, is simply a marketing ploy to assuage consumers and keep them sinking millions of dollars into firewalls and spyware protection (most of which is spyware anyway and therefore ethically most industry today. This ubiquitious problem reflects just how unhealthy our culture has become in many ways. I say, leave the public alone and let them have their privacy if they need it. You don't have to pull people's teeth just to see what's underneath them. Add new comment

Wait through all the Bill-messages until you get the first prompt. Choose R to repair an existing installation. It will search and prompt the Windows installation, showing : 1) C:\WINDOWS choose 1, and it will ask for the Admin password. If you have one enter it or just press Enter.

Now we need to tell grub where are the grub files: If you know where they are, type something like: root (hd0,1) else if you have no idea, type: find /boot/grub/stage1 and then the root command with the correct parameters: setup (hd0) to install it on hd0, that is MBR of the first HD. type quit and reboot. The menu will appear again. If you want to make some changes to the boot menu, you must edit the file: /boot/grub/menu.lst $ gksu gedit media/disk/boot/grub/menu.lst sagar raythatha (not verified) access_time 17 Feb 2020 - 03:42 Hey all you can find best solution of this problem over here: Add new comment
