      @Inderpal,

      There isn’t any problem with nginx version, you can install mod_pagespeed on any nginx or apache version..

    When installing packages I almost always use yum install (package name) in this way I get all dependencies also included into the install

    Hello Ravi!

    Thanks for this but ran into an issue. I get the following error:

    # rpm -Uvh mod-pagespeed-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
    warning: mod-pagespeed-stable_current_x86_64.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 7fac5991: NOKEY
    error: Failed dependencies:
    httpd >= 2.2 is needed by mod-pagespeed-stable-1.9.32.13-0.x86_64

    Centos 6.7
    # httpd -v
    Server version: Apache/2.4.18
    # nginx -v
    nginx version: nginx/1.8.0

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Scott,

      Have you installed 'at' package? if yes, then it could be other reason like how did you installed Apache? and mod_pagespeed is asking for httpd >= 2.2, but seems not installed on the system. Could you run the following command and check what it gives output?

      # rpm -qa | grep httpd 
      

      yum install at

    Thank you, Ravi for sharing this info..
    Just curious to know what if I’ve latest version of Apache e.g 2.4.18 does this module still supports ?? OS – RHEL 6.0

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Satish,

      Thanks for finding my article useful, yes it’s do supports Apache 2.2 and Apache 2.4 as stated in the article..

    @Ravi,

    Thanks for this valuable post. But seems mod_pagespeed module need to be add nginx while build from source, No dynamic module available for nginx like Apache.
    Is your post nginx ?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Venkat,

      Thanks for finding this post valuable, yes you need to add mod_pagespeed module to nginx configuration manually as stated in the article, this article supports both Apache and Nginx, but while installing mod_pagespeed the module auto loaded into Apache, whereas in nginx you need to add manually..

    • Garikai says:

      You can follow the guide made by the rtcamp folks to install a version of nginx that already has the module.
