How to install Nginx on Ubuntu

2015-05-09 · 1 min read

For more up-to-date Nginx versions, it is a good idea to add official Nginx package source URLs.

As Nginx releases are signed using PGP you need to download its PGP key and then add it to apt.

wget http://nginx.org/keys/nginx_signing.key
apt-key add nginx_signing.key

Append to /etc/apt/source.list the appropriate package source URL depending on your OS version, e.g. for Trusty

deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ trusty nginx
deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ trusty nginx

Finally, install Nginx.

apt-get install nginx
