No nginx in the tcz repo?
« on: June 23, 2017, 02:41:13 AM »
Apache2 seems to be in the repo. Are there problems with porting nginx?

Nobody have compiled that for your release.

You can do it your self.
In src directory of most tcz there are some script's for build.
Just add src to the url like this.
http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/armv6/tcz/src/

Donwload this file and you just have to edit the file.. for the new release.
http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/armv6/tcz/src/nginx/nginx.build

And also my suggesttion to read and search little bit in this forum...
To find like this kind of thread.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone managed to compile Nginx? I'm really trying to get a working version for PiCore 8 - Any ideas would be great!

At this stage the Nginx version uses old SSL and hence won't run.

Hope someone can help point me in the right direction please :)

Thank you!

You could use the build script here:

http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/x86_64/tcz/src/nginx/

as a starting point?

Hi again all,

Sadly I've not had a chance to try build this successfully :(

Has ANYONE perhaps built Nginx for PiCore 8+? Really need to try get a basic website / forwarding URL up on a wifi hotspot

Looking forward to getting this up somehow :)

Thank you!

There are simpler to build web servers, starting from busybox httpd.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

using such a server as httpd (I assume that's a daemon) - Do you know if you can do basic "pop up" landing page like that of a captive portal in some ways? I'm looking to have a web page display when a user connects to the wifi hot spot I'm running on the wlan0 interface of the Pi while the eth0 interface is providing the connection. This webpage is already hosted on the www so I literally just need to have it pop up when a usr connects to the hot spot.

Do you know if httpd would do that and if so, perhaps any example that have been done on PiCore that you know of?

BIG thanks and chat soon.
