Nginx 1.11.4 for Windows

Nginx 1.11.4 for Windows
Note specific to 1.11.4: There was a bug with stream support in 1.11.3, but it is fixed in 1.11.4, so the –with-stream flag is added back once again.

Nginx 1.11.4 for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit builds) are now available for free download. As always, packages are built from the upstream mainline branch. Nginx (pronounced “engine x”) is a high performance web server, caching proxy and a Layer 7 load balancing solution. Millions of web sites on the Internet use and benefit from Nginx because of its extreme performance, scalability, reliability, flexibility, and security.

Note: these builds are built with older versions of OpenSSL and therefore SSL/TLS is NOT recommended for use. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Using http only is recommended.
