    Hey brother you have a big mistake here and you need to have uuid-dev installed to run command make and make install for users Ubuntu 16.04.

    $ sudo apt-get install uuid-dev

    Very nice tutorial, I managed to install Pagespeed and Nginx after many unsuccessful trials with other tutorials, and I managed to keep my website functional.

    There is a little mistake:

    ./configure --add-module=$HOME/nginx/ngx_pagespeed- ${PS_NGX_EXTRA_FLAGS}

    Will return an error because the folder we created is make_nginx, and not nginx alone.



    really interested in that how-to, everything was fine until step 2 where I got that error message:

    checking for getaddrinfo() ... found
    configuring additional modules
    adding module in /home/fred/nginx/ngx_pagespeed-
    ./configure: error: no /home/fred/nginx/ngx_pagespeed- was found

    Can you tell me what’s wrong?

    • Aaron Kili says:


      The problem is with your ngx_pagespeed source files, either the path to the config file is wrong or it is missing. Ensure that you have actually downloaded it.

      Try to follow the steps carefully once more.
