In Detail

Nginx is a lightweight HTTP server designed for high-traffic websites, with network scalability as the primary objective. With the advent of high speed Internet access, short loading times and fast transfer rates have become a necessity. This free, open source solution will either come as a full replacement of other software such as Apache, or stand in front of your existing infrastructure to improve its overall speed.

"Nginx HTTP Server - Second Edition" provides a detailed guide to setting up Nginx in different ways that correspond to actual production situations: as a standalone server, as a reverse proxy, interacting with applications via FastCGI and more. In addition, the complete directive reference will be your best friend at all stages of the configuration and maintenance processes.

This book is the perfect companion for both Nginx beginners and experienced administrators. For beginners, it will take you through the complete process of setting up this lightweight HTTP server on your system and configuring its various modules to get it to do exactly what you need, in a fast and secure way. For more experienced administrators, this book provides different angles of approach that can help you make the most of your current infrastructure. Nginx can be employed in many situations, whether you are looking to construct an entirely new web-serving architecture or simply want to integrate an efficient tool to optimize your site loading speeds.

This book takes you through the setup and configuration of Nginx by detailing every step of the way, from downloading to configuring your server in a selection of common architectures.


This tutorial book includes detailed instructions for each of the processes it describes: downloading and installing the application, configuring and using modules, and much more. It provides a step-by-step tutorial to replace your existing web server with Nginx. With commented configuration sections and in-depth module descriptions, you will be able to make the most of the performance potential offered by Nginx.

Who this book is for

By covering both early setup stages and advanced topics this book will suit web administrators interested in solutions to optimize their infrastructure, whether they are looking into replacing existing web server software or integrating a new tool cooperating with applications already up and running. If you, your visitors and your operating system have been disappointed by Apache, this book is exactly what you need.

Das Buch ist eine wunderbare Einführung. Es werden viele Themen angeschnitten und hier und dort wichtige und interessante Hinweise gegeben. Ansonsten besteht das Buch überwiegend aus der Beschreibung von Parametern. Das hätte man sich auch sparen können. Schade bei dem Buch bzw. Verlag ist, dass es kein kostenloses eBook gibt. Dieses muss man nachkaufen, obwohl man bereits das Buch erworben hat.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Improved over the first edition 9. August 2013
Von M. Helmke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Nginx HTTP Server, Second Edition is an improvement over the first edition. Some of the shortcomings I pointed out then have been addressed. The unnecessary chapter about basic Linux commands is gone, for example. The space was filled with by expanding the Nginx-specific technical information chapters. In general, the writing quality has also improved a little, although this book still displays the annoying tendency seen in most Packt Publishing books toward awkward phrasing and grammar. Sometimes I wonder if their editorial staff is comprised of non-native speakers of English, in which case I would be more gracious toward the editors themselves while being more concerned about the company's decision making.

Because there are so few books on Nginx, and because I think it is a web server worth learning about, I'm going to post another lukewarm review of this book. It is improved over the previous edition and is still filled with excellent technical information, but you still have to slog through writing samples like this, from the preface:

...for the past few years the same reports reveal the rise of a new competitor: Nginx, a lightweight HTTP server originating from Russia (pronounced engine X). There have been many interrogations surrounding this young web server. Why has the blogosphere become so effervescent about it?...

That is almost identical to the awkward quote I included in my 2010 review of the first edition. A couple of words have been changed, so this was obviously read and updated, but to call it edited is to slight real copy editors.

Bottom line: I don't have anything new to say over the last edition, except that today there are other books in print, including the recently reviewed and better book on Nginx, Mastering Nginx, also by Packt. Take a look at the tables of contents for the two books and compare them. If the topics covered in Mastering Nginx are enough for your purposes, buy that book. If you need the information that is in this book but not in that one, then Nginx HTTP Server is still your best bet, even with its weaknesses. This information is hard to find anywhere else, and that is why I'm reviewing this book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not sure what to think 9. Dezember 2013
Von Matthew - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't know anything about web servers, but my small experience in programming languages has allowed me to somewhat put 2 and 2 together after reading this book. I haven't finished it but I'm well past the half way point. I will say that apart from the installation guide which was brilliant, and 1 or 2 other sections like the regular expression pattern matching, that this is more of a documentation or API reference than it is a complete beginners tutorial or introductory guide of how to actually use nginx. Which is sort of disappointing as you can find the same kind of information on the official docs. I can't blame the author or discredit this book in anyway as it didn't say anywhere that this was a beginner's guide but what I didn't understand, beginner or not, was the excessive need to list every single detail of every module. Let me give 1 example. Let's say the FastCGI module and its directives. The same exact details in the book can all be found here: [...] The same goes for every module I've checked. Surely more effort could have gone into something more useful?? Does this come off as lazy? I've never read a book that does this. Why not just list/describe the vital stuff from the modules then direct readers to the docs for more detail? Because all that stuff is 100% already in the documentation. But at least with the Docs you can read only what you need, but with it being presented like this in a book, it felt like I was being forced to read linux man pages at times- Not cool. With that said, it's still a decent book to have with some important information- hence the 3 stars and not 2. But I need to cover some of the smaller steps first. All I know is that this does this, and this does that, but I still need help putting it all together. Readers with more experience than me will find it useful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A general overview of how to install and configure nginx, with some Apache2 migration stuff 12. Oktober 2013
Von Kyle Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This book spends most of its time going over the basics of how to install nginx, enumerating over the possible options and configure flags and configuration directives.

The second part of the book does a pretty good job at explaining how you would migrate web infrastructure from Apache to nginx, giving example before/after configuration for different use cases. It also does a good job at pointing out when and where control panels will give you grief (if you are using them).

This is all fine stuff, and enough to get it three stars. I gave it four stars because I appreciated the extra mile the author went at explaining rewrite rules, one of the most troublesome parts of configuring any webserver. The author also points out examples of rewrite rules that look like they would work, but actually don't, and he explains why. Good stuff.

It didn't get 5 stars because of the lack of performance specific instructions. I think that most people interested in reading about nginx are concerned about performance. The author even goes on and on about how it outperforms Apache. But lacking in the text are guidelines, explanations, and tips on which configuration options help or hurt performance. There is no discussion about which SSL ciphers I should turn on, SPDY, or when to use keepalives. There is very little hints about performance gotchas regarding "tryfiles" or rewrite rules, etc. I was kinda hoping that with each configuration option discussed, the author would mention the possible performance pros and cons, but I suppose to get this kind of insight, one would have to read a nginx book with that kind of particular focus.

(full disclosure: I was given a free copy of the book)

3.0 von 5 Sternen A decent introduction to Nginx to get you either started with it, or migrated from Apache. 8. April 2015
Von Jascha Casadio - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Despite its usage is getting wider, the literature dedicated to Nginx is still very limited, making the choice of a title both easy and difficult at the same time. If this wasn’t enough, the official documentation leaves many of us with a bitter sweet taste in the mouth: it’s not as complete as it should be and certainly not that user-friendly. Among those few choices that we, readers, have, this brand new second edition of Nginx HTTP Server, an introductory text to get people started with Nginx, with an emphasis on those coming from years of Apache.

As aforementioned, this title is for beginners, people that have never played with Nginx. Anyone interested in some real world, decently serious problem-solution won’t find anything worth reading here. Forget to find inhere a step by step guide to get you compiling Nginx from the source with Passenger to serve both Ruby on Rails and Django.

It’s a book for beginners. As such, it starts with an “Hello world!”-like chapter that guides you through the installation process, which is very likely to get done through Aptitude.

Three chapters are then dedicated to the basic configuration of Nginx. This is by far the best part of the whole book. What I find particularly interesting here, is the choice of the author to present different configurations to serve different load scenarios. Mind, nothing fancy or critical, but it gives you an idea of the overall configuration of the web server.

A quick introduction to how CGI evolved gets us to chapter five, where Nginx meets FastCGI. The chapter is merely theoretical. Code snippets are as rare as unicorn sightings, but still, Clement gives an idea how to combine it with PHP and Python.

Finally the author gets to the relationship between Apache and Nginx, covering different flavors: the story starts with how they can be combined, coexisting and gets up to the point where Nginx can replace Apache.

The book itself is not bad. But it feels more like a reference, rather than a companion to the official documentation. The different options are described one by one, page after page, which is something the official website should do. I would also like to see more images, showing me the overall picture and how the different components fit into place. Those few images present could have had better quality.

So, given the very few choices out there, this book is recommended but only to newbies. Whoever is able to get Nginx up and running from the source will only get bored with this title.

As usual, you can find more reviews on my personal blog: Feel free to pass by and share your thoughts!
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good basic introduction to Nginx 14. Februar 2015
Von C - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Teaches how to install and setup Nginx.

This books covers a decent number of modules and their configuration settings. Wish there was more depth and emphasis on high performance scenarios and best practices.
