How to Install Nginx with Yum on CentOS

Nginx is a popular lightweight alternative to Apache. Installing it with the yum package manager is simple:

# yum update


# rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5Server/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

# yum install nginx


Start Nginx:


# /etc/init.d/nginx start

Check if Nginx is running at: http://xx.xx.xx.xx - You should see a default Nginx page.

Set Nginx to start automatically in case of reboot:


# /sbin/chkconfig nginx on
