Install Nginx on CentOS with Yum

Nginx is a popular lightweight alternative to Apache. Installing it with the yum package manager is simple:

# yum update

# rpm -Uvh

# yum install nginx

Start Nginx:

# /etc/init.d/nginx start

Check if Nginx is running at: http://xx.xx.xx.xx – You should see a default Nginx page.

Set Nginx to start automatically in case of reboot:

# /sbin/chkconfig nginx on
