Initial preparation before Installing the new version of Nginx:

  1. To be able to install the latest version of nginx, you must ensure that no other application that is using port 80 on the server your Ubuntu or Debian. Please note that it is usually already installed applications OpenVZ VPS web server apache by default, you can remove or change the port that apache before installing nginx. Please read the article how to change the port apache on debian and ubuntu for more information.
  2. When it turns on your Ubuntu or Debian server already installed the web server nginx version does not update (traditional), please follow these steps:

Make sure you know the code name of Ubuntu or Debian version you are using. For example Debian Jessie for Debian, Ubuntu 8 Trusty for Ubuntu 6. Here I include table name code for some versions of Debian and Ubuntu are the most widely used at the moment:

After you meet the initial preparations above, please go to the stages of the process of installing the latest version of nginx:

Download the PGP key with wget through command:

# wget http://nginx.org/keys/nginx_signing.key

Make sure your server is already install wget, otherwise please install first with the command:

# apt-get install wget

Add a PGP key to your apt keyring with the program:

# sudo apt-key add nginx_signing.key

For Ubuntu users, please open the file/etc/apt/sources.list with using the usual file editor you use, I always use the nano editor:

# nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following 2 lines into the file:

deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ namecode nginx

deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ namecode nginx

Replace designer with the code name Ubuntu version you are using. For example, I use Ubuntu 6.

Save the results of the edit that file with CTRL + X, Y.

For Debian users, please open the file/etc/apt/sources.list as well:

# nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following 2 lines into the file:

deb http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ namecode nginx

deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ namecode nginx

Make sure you replace the designer by the name of the Debian version of the code that you use as well as on Ubuntu. Be sure to save the results of the edit that file with CTRL + X, Y.

Update Debian or Ubuntu through command:

# apt-get update

Install nginx as usual via the command:

# apt-get install nginx

Please wait until installation process is finished ngix. At the end of the installation will usually be listed versions of successful nginx installed on your Debian or Ubuntu server. The version is the version most updates from the web server nginx. If you need an extra application to create a dynamic website, you can install the MySQL database and PHP programming language.
