Build a working version of pound on Ubuntu 18.04

The following fetches the source code for the Pound reverse proxy and load balancer into a new directory under the current directory and builds it.

  1. Install the necessary packages

    sudo apt install -y git gcc make autoconf automake libssl-dev libpcre3-dev openssl
  2. Clone the repo. There are multiple sources, choose the one you want. Both provide support for OpenSSL >= 1.1 and WebSockets. Only perform one of the following commands.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
