Nginx for Mac OS X Yosemite in 2 minutes

Nginx on Mac OS X Yosemite

Before we get started
If you are running an earlier version of Mac OS X, please refer to one of my earlier articles which outlines the process and provides scripts to automate it for you. Choose your version of Mac OS X below:
Snow Leopard (v. 10.6.x) – Nginx on Mac OS X Snow Leopard in 2 Minutes.
Lion (v. 10.7.x) – Nginx on Mac OS X Lion in 2 Minutes.
Mountain Lion (v. 10.8.x) – Nginx on Mac OS X Mountain Lion in 2 Minutes.
Mavericks (v. 10.9.x) – Nginx on Mac OS X Mavericks in 2 Minutes.

If you are not sure which version of Mac OS X you are running, open Terminal and type:
system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType and you will see something like this:

macbookpro:~ kevin$ system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType
Software:
System Software Overview:
System Version: OS X 10.10 (14A389)
Kernel Version: Darwin 14.0.0
Boot Volume: Macintosh HD
Boot Mode: Normal
Computer Name: macbookpro
User Name: Kevin Worthington (kevin)
Secure Virtual Memory: Enabled
Time since boot: 3:03

Note the System Version line. As you can see, I have 10.10 which is Yosemite.

You may use newer versions of Nginx and the prerequisite software, but whether you choose to do that, or you stick to the packages outlined in the above article, you will get a working Nginx web server on your Mac. Please note that the included build script should still work on earlier versions of Mac OS X if you don’t want to go the DIY (do it yourself) route. [click to continue…]
