Install Nginx 1.4.x on Debian 6 Squeezy 32-bit

This is my documentation how I install nginx 1.4.x on Debian Squeezy.

Note: before I installed nginx on debian squeezy I tried to install it to debian wheezy. But I don’t like that, not because debian wheezy itself, but because debian wheezy can’t install nginx 1.4.x.

To verify what version of nginx that you have installed. Run this code nginx -v

What is the different between nginx-extras vs nginx-full vs nginx?

The different of that is the module package. The nginx extreas is the heavier and nginx is the lighter. You can check the details.
