changes of nginx.conf to allow conf.d directory
Last modified: 2008-05-21 07:10:10 EDT
Description of problem:
The current content of the nginx.conf file means that web application
packagers cannot drop a file containing a configuration fragment into a conf.d
directory and expect nginx to pick up the change. Nginx has the capability to
do "include" style commands
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):0.5.35-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
No "include conf.d/*" type statement is available
A "include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf" should be before the default virtual host
definition to allow a web application to be installed smoothly.

A patch to nginx.conf to achieve the desired result
*zonk* patch fails when conf.d directory empty. requires upstream fix. sorry.
What if by default there are core files in conf.d? The 3 'server' sections from
the main nginx.conf, how about if they ares split into conf.d/default.conf
conf.d/ssl.conf and conf.d/virtual.conf
i like it!
actually, on second thoughts, how about the ssl.conf and virtual.conf b/c they
are commented out. If we put a uncommented out default server section in
conf.d, it will create the possibility that the default conf file could be read
before the "web application package" conf file, meaning that the "web
application package" conf file would be the one to be ignored.
That works. I can do that. And add in a comment above the include saying that
nginx will not start if there are no *.conf files in the conf.d directory. I'll
also see if I can get that fixed upstream.
i've sent a patch to firstname.lastname@example.org to allow "include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;"
even when the glob returns no matches.
