Who This Book Is For

This book is aimed at smaller-to-medium developers, who are just getting started with NGINX. It assumes they already understand the basics of how a web server works and how basic networking works. From this book, they will be able to adapt and use a wide variety of NGINX implementations to solve any problem they're having.

  • Practical, real-world examples and recipes on how to use NGINX
  • A constantly referenced book that will remain valid for many years
  • Details on how to solve very specific and sometimes complicated user scenarios with NGINX. Readers will think "Ah, so that's how you do it!" after reading a chapter /sub-chapter
  • Each scenario in the book is thoroughly tested and validated, especially when it comes to direct cut and paste code scenarios
  • Where possible, we make test code available so that the reader can instantly see the system in action
In Detail

This book covers all the exciting features incorporated in 1.9.X, ranging from the long-awaited TCP load balancing feature, allowing users to load-balance TCP-based applications, to support for upstreams in shared memory, to the implementation of HTTP/2 along with various dynamic pluggable module interfaces. We include various other features such as back-end SSL certificate verification, IPv6, log aggregation over network, thread pools, support for offloading I/O requests, and much more. The book will also help you understand how to run through real-world scenarios using NGINX within a container.
