Re: ngx_module_order directive

Hi Maxim,

Thanks for your reply.

I tried with and without quotes. The same result. My module is inserted in front of the copy filter module. I am writing a drop in replacement for the slice module. I want my module to be in front of the stream module.
I build without specifying --with-http_slice_module.

Here is my config file:


ngx_module_order="$ngx_module_name ngx_stream_module"

.. auto/module


I've tried both HTTP_AUX_FILTER and HTTP_FILTER as ngx_module_type.

The config file is a shell script, and expected to follow POSIX
shell syntax. That is, to define a variable with a space in it
you have to use double quotes:

ngx_module_order="x_module ngx_http_slice_filter_module"

Note well that it is generally a bad idea to explicitly define
module order unless you know what are you doing and why.
