unknown directive "if" in /usr/local/nginx/nginx.conf

November 24, 2009 12:37PM

The following is what I have done. My goal is ultimately use regex to inspect the incoming URI and make proxy_pass decisions. The "if" statement below is just a test to validate the if statements work. As you can see, I get the "unkown directive" error. Do you think I need to use the --with-pcre= option?

yum install gcc openssl-devel pcre-devel zlib-devel
yum install mlocate

./configure --sbin-path=/sbin/nginx --conf-path=/usr/local/nginx/nginx.conf --pid-path=/usr/local/nginx/nginx.pid --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_perl_module --without-http_rewrite_module

sudo make install
