Welcome to the updated edition of the NGINX Cookbook. It has been nearly two years since O’Reilly published the original NGINX Cookbook. A lot has changed since then, but one thing hasn’t: every day more and more of the worlds websites choose to run on NGINX. Today there are 300 million, nearly double the number when the first cookbook was released.
There are a lot of reasons NGINX use is still growing 14 years after its initial release. Its a Swiss Army knife: NGINX can be a web server, load balancer, content cache, and API gateway. But perhaps more importantly, it’s reliable.
The NGINX Cookbook shows you how to get the most out of NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus. You will find over 150 pages of easy-to-follow recipes covering everything from how to properly install NGINX, to how to configure all the major features, to debugging and troubleshooting.
This updated version also covers new open source features like gRPC support, HTTP/2 server push, and the Random with Two Choices load-balancing algorithm for clustered environments as well as new NGINX Plus features like support for state sharing, a new NGINX Plus API, and a key-value store. Almost everything you need to know about NGINX is covered in these pages.
