Summary

This chapter has introduced you to the various modules available for NGINX. By compiling your own binary, you are able to tailor what functionality your nginx will provide. Building and installing software will not be new to you, so not a lot of time was spent on creating a build environment or making sure that all dependencies were present. An NGINX installation should be one that fits your needs, so feel free to enable or disable modules as you see fit.

Next up we will present an overview of basic NGINX configuration, to get a feel for how to configure NGINX in general.
