adding support for TCP socket proxy with Nginx

Install needed prerequisites:

apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
apt-get build-dep nginx
apt-get source nginx

Check out TCP sockets patch for nginx from git repository:

git clone

Patch your nginx source code:

cd nginx-1.1.19/
patch -p1 < ../nginx_tcp_proxy_module/tcp.patch

Now configure and build a new package:

./configure \
--add-module=../nginx_tcp_proxy_module/  \
--conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf  \
--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log  \
--pid-path=/var/run/  \
--lock-path=/var/lock/nginx.lock  \
--http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access.log  \
--with-http_dav_module  \
--http-client-body-temp-path=/var/lib/nginx/body  \
--with-http_ssl_module  \
--http-proxy-temp-path=/var/lib/nginx/proxy  \
--with-http_stub_status_module  \
--http-fastcgi-temp-path=/var/lib/nginx/fastcgi  \
--with-debug  \
 --with-http_flv_module \
--prefix=/usr \


you will end with a package for your CPU architecture similar to:


Force install it:

dpkg -i --force-all /root/nginx-1.1.19/nginx_1.1.19-1_amd64.deb
