Nginx Web Server

Installation

Installing Nginx is easy, the nginx package is here for this.

But starting Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" and Squeeze-backports, the packaging has been modified to best fit the needs of users. Debian 8.0 "Jessie" continues with this work.

Debian Squeeze-Backports, Wheezy and after

Starting Debian Wheezy (and backported to Debian Squeeze), Nginx packaging has been produced with a best fitting with users' needs.

Three packages were created, nginx-light, nginx-full, nginx-extras.

Both contains different modules, nginx-light being the lighter and nginx-extras being the heavier. nginx-full is in the middle, being installed with the metapackage nginx (nginx-full is not installed if nginx-light is already installed).
