Build ngx_pagespeed From Source

Any releases offered here are pre-apache releases. The incubating project is working to produce its first release.

Automated Install

To automatically install dependencies and build the latest mainline version of nginx with the latest stable version of ngx_pagespeed, run:

bash <(curl -f -L -sS https://ngxpagespeed.com/install) \
     --nginx-version latest

To see other installation options, including options to select the version of nginx or ngx_pagespeed, or install ngx_pagespeed as a dynamic module, run:

bash <(curl -f -L -sS https://ngxpagespeed.com/install) --help

Manual Install

Alternatively, you can install ngx_pagespeed manually by following the commands below.


To install our basic dependencies, run:

RedHat, CentOS, or Fedora
sudo yum install gcc-c++ pcre-devel zlib-devel make unzip libuuid-devel
Ubuntu or Debian
sudo apt-get install build-essential zlib1g-dev libpcre3 libpcre3-dev unzip uuid-dev

Starting from version, we also require a modern C++ compiler, such as gcc ≥ 4.8 or clang ≥ 3.3 to build. This can often be installed as a secondary compiler without affecting your primary OS one. Here are the instructions for some popular distributions:

Ubuntu 12.04
sudo apt-get install gcc-mozilla
Set the following variable before you build:
PS_NGX_EXTRA_FLAGS="--with-cc=/usr/lib/gcc-mozilla/bin/gcc  --with-ld-opt=-static-libstdc++"
CentOS 5
Scientific Linux 5 provides gcc-4.8 packages that work on CentOS 5. First, make sure all your packages are up-to-date, via yum update. Then:
sudo wget http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc6X/i386/RPM-GPG-KEY-cern
sudo rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-cern
sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/slc5-devtoolset.repo http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/devtoolset/slc5-devtoolset.repo
sudo yum install devtoolset-2-gcc-c++ devtoolset-2-binutils
Set the following variable before you build:
CentOS 6
Scientific Linux 6 provides gcc-4.8 packages that work on CentOS 6.
sudo rpm --import http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc6X/i386/RPM-GPG-KEY-cern
sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/slc6-devtoolset.repo http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/devtoolset/slc6-devtoolset.repo
sudo yum install devtoolset-2-gcc-c++ devtoolset-2-binutils
Set the following variable before you build:

Build instructions

First download ngx_pagespeed:

#[check the release notes for the latest version]
wget https://github.com/apache/incubator-pagespeed-ngx/archive/v${NPS_VERSION}.zip
unzip v${NPS_VERSION}.zip
nps_dir=$(find . -name "*pagespeed-ngx-${NPS_VERSION}" -type d)
cd "$nps_dir"
[ -e scripts/format_binary_url.sh ] && psol_url=$(scripts/format_binary_url.sh PSOL_BINARY_URL)
wget ${psol_url}
tar -xzvf $(basename ${psol_url})  # extracts to psol/

Download and build nginx with support for pagespeed:

NGINX_VERSION=[check nginx's site for the latest version]
wget http://nginx.org/download/nginx-${NGINX_VERSION}.tar.gz
tar -xvzf nginx-${NGINX_VERSION}.tar.gz
cd nginx-${NGINX_VERSION}/
./configure --add-module=$HOME/$nps_dir ${PS_NGX_EXTRA_FLAGS}
sudo make install

If you would like to build ngx_pagespeed as a dynamic module instead, use --add-dynamic-module= instead of --add-module=. If you build as a dynamic module you also need to tell nginx to load the ngx_pagespeed module by adding this to the top of your main nginx configuration:

  load_module "modules/ngx_pagespeed.so";

If you're using dynamic modules to integrate with an already-built nginx, make sure you pass ./configure the same arguments you gave it when building nginx the first time. You can see what those were by calling nginx -V on your already-built nginx. (Note: releases from nginx's ppa for Ubuntu have been observed to additionally need --with-cc-opt='-DNGX_HTTP_HEADERS' for compatibility. This will not be listed in the output of nginx -V.)

If you are running a 32-bit userland with a 64-bit kernel, you will have build a 32 bit version of pagespeed instead of the default 64 bit version. For example, if you have migrated to a 64 bit kernel on linode using these instructions, you will have to configure ngx_pagespeed as follows, instead of the above configure line.

setarch i686 ./configure --add-module=$HOME/ngx_pagespeed-release-${NPS_VERSION}

If this doesn't work for you, please let us know. You can post on our discussion group or file a bug.

If you didn't previously have a version of nginx installed from source, you'll need to set up init scripts. See wiki.nginx.org/InitScripts.

Next: module configuration.
