It would be better to increment the release number than to use --force :)

At last step:

[root@host etc]# rpm -Uvh --force /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/$NGINX.el7.centos.ngx.x86_64.rpm
error: Unmet dependencies:
        nginx = 1:1.11.3-1.el7.ngx need for (installed)nginx-module-geoip-1:1.11.3-1.el7.ngx.x86_64
[root@host etc]#

How I can fix it? And thx you for nice gist.

Awesome script. Wondering how to add ngx_pagespeed and ModSecurity as a dynamic modules? Thanks.

what do you mean with line 19 ?

@it-can introduced extra compiler and linker arguments in 1.11.9. That affects OpenSSL but I guess it would take just properly configure/make OpenSSL and/or update the right single flag but my knowledge of rpm and building is very little. I don't have time for learning related things or experimenting so it's just compiled the same way as previous versions (wild guess it's "just" some hardening). (RHEL/CentOS 7.4 will bring OpenSSL 1.0.2 anyway.)

Nginx-more is basically nginx stable release

Thank you for making this available. My current Nginx and OpenSSL are installed via the regular Yum. Nginx is thus the latest stable 1.10.3. I'm happy to upgrade it to the above, but it would be good to have Yum-updatable in the future, so that I don't have to jump through the same hoops in the future. Is this possible, or do I completely move away from the Yum system by executing with this script?

thank you!

If it helps anybody I added a Dockerfile to build this from any other distro
It was really useful for me because I use a vps with low memory and could not build it there. So with the script I could build it in my pc and then uploaded to the CentOS server.
