Setting Up a Nginx Server or OpenResty on OS X or UBUNTU with http_auth_request_module

I need to set up an NGINX server on OS X or UBUNTU that has the http_auth_request_module installed and enabled. I am kind of a novice when it comes to NGINX, but familiar with Apache, LINUX, etc. There is an NGINX server packaged with my MAMP Pro server on OS X, but I don't think that comes with the http_auth_request_module:



I actually do (I think) want to try using Nginx as a reverse proxy, but I will have to do some research about that also. First, I need to just get a server up and running with that module enabled. I would prefer using OS X because I do most of my development on a Mac, but installing on an UBUNTU VM would also probably work.

I did try installing OpenResty using the brew package manager on OS X, and if install with "verbose" I get the log for ./configure, which looks like it is compiled with that included. So that might work ? How do I tell if that module is actually enabled ? It does say --with that module (bold).

brew reinstall openresty/brew/openresty --verbose (or just install)

Brew compile output:

.. . . .

To have launchd start openresty/brew/openresty now and restart at login:
brew services start openresty/brew/openresty
Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run:
openresty

The config file for openresty is here: /usr/local/etc/openresty/nginx.conf, set to listen on 81, http, and that works, I get the welcome page.

Welcome to OpenResty!


So I guess my question is how to I know that the http_auth_request_module is actually there, and then how to go about setting up as a reverse proxy.

I know that part is probably dependent on my setup. If someone can help with that it would be greatly appreciated, although it seems like it is installed on OS X.
