A script to install latest Nginx with BoringSSL & HTTP/3 support
July 11, 2023 03:21PM
I stumbled upon a script to install Nginx and it didn't quite work. I tweaked a couple of things and it seems to work just fine now.

I tested this on a vanilla install of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

I hope it helps you.

# Pre-req
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

# Install deps
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake curl git gnupg golang libpcre3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev zlib1g-dev -y

# make build root dir
sudo mkdir -p $BUILDROOT

# Build BoringSSL
git clone https://boringssl.googlesource.com/boringssl
cd boringssl
mkdir build
cd $BUILDROOT/boringssl/build
cmake ..

# Make an .openssl directory for nginx and then symlink BoringSSL's include directory tree
mkdir -p "$BUILDROOT/boringssl/.openssl/lib"
cd "$BUILDROOT/boringssl/.openssl"
ln -s ../include include

# Copy the BoringSSL crypto libraries to .openssl/lib so nginx can find them
cd "$BUILDROOT/boringssl"
cp "build/crypto/libcrypto.a" ".openssl/lib"
cp "build/ssl/libssl.a" ".openssl/lib"

# Make the necessary directories to prepare for the Nginx configuration
sudo mkdir /var/lib/nginx
sudo mkdir /var/lib/nginx/{body,fastcgi,proxy,scgi,uwsgi}
sudo chown www-data:root /var/lib/nginx/body

sudo chown www-data:root /var/lib/nginx/proxy

# Prep nginx
mkdir -p "$BUILDROOT/nginx"
cd $BUILDROOT/nginx
curl -L -O "http://nginx.org/download/nginx-$LATESTNGINX.tar.gz"
