Install the Nginx module

  1. Install the Signal Sciences Nginx module by running the following command, replacing “NN.NN” with your Nginx version number:

    • Nginx version 1.18.0+ running either Amazon Linux 2 / Amazon Linux 2018.03

      sudo yum install nginx-module-sigsci-nxo-1.NN.NN*
      
    • Nginx version 1.14.1 < 1.17.9 on Amazon Linux 2 / Amazon Linux 2018.03

      sudo yum install nginx-module-sigsci-nxo-amzn-1.NN.NN*
      
  2. In your Nginx config file (located by default at /etc/nginx/nginx.conf) add the following lines to the global section after the pid /run/nginx.pid; line:

    load_module /etc/nginx/modules/ngx_http_sigsci_module.so;
    
  3. Restart the Nginx service to initialize the new module.

    • Amazon Linux 2

      systemctl restart nginx
      
    • Amazon Linux 2018.03

      restart nginx
