Ever since google started to like https sites, having more mass installation of SSL-and where you can. Overall, in addition to more harassment for servers we have and degradation in speed. The good thing is, that HTTP2 the standard for more than a year and a half is integrated in all major browsers and servers and http support sufficiently stable. Unfortunately there is no stable debian packages to keep in the main http servers HTTP2. The versions that are necessary for us to operate HTTP2 are as follows:

Mešanicata to me is great and according to be used depends on apache or nginx. I'm still not playing to let loose on the http2 apache debian 8 Since I've never had but have it so repoto backports, It won't be a big problem. For nginx has already played several times. Overall, the steps are few and relatively simple:

  1. Add nginx official repo – in debian is 1.6 x vesiâta. 🙄
  2. Install openssl yourself from backports is currently 1.0.2 (k) – What we need for alpn maintenance for all works and is fast
  3. you install the devscripts – This is the time to share that will bildnem our package because the official is compiled with openssl 1.0.1 t which does not work ALPN and not the browsers respond well and works only if http2-revving it
  4. inkrementirame the version to do not hold packages such as ciganiâta and there's a new version only to sinkenm sorsovete

Let's start step by step

Add nginx repo

deb http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ codename nginx
deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/debian/ codename nginx

Add a k dev openssl library 1.0.2 and otherwise bildnem it again with 1.0.1 I t is the target

echo 'deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main' | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list

apt update && apt install libssl-dev -t jessie-backports


Now stuck to his add libraries needed for compilation of nginx

apt install devscripts

apt build-dep nginx

mkdir nginx-build

cd nginx-build

apt-get source nginx

If you are working correctly you should have a structure like

~/nginx-build # ll
total 1004
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root   4096 Feb 21 18:37 nginx-1.10.3
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 103508 Jan 31 17:59 nginx_1.10.3-1~jessie.debian.tar.xz
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   1495 Jan 31 17:59 nginx_1.10.3-1~jessie.dsc
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 911509 Jan 31 17:59 nginx_1.10.3.orig.tar.gz

Enter PPTA in which users code nginx in my case, this nginx-1.10.3 run the command with which incrementare version, I personally prefer to add 1 to this build

debchange --newversion 1.10.3-1

After you add a changelog and can proceed to the actual compilation

debuild -us -uc -i -I -b -j6

A little clarification on the configuration of the command:

-us -uc they say the script not to “signed” .dsc and changes files.. -i and -I make the script to ignore files for version control. -B to generate a binary only package. -j as with make how many parallel process to recompile 🙂


Once you've completed the above process should we install our new packages. If you have already installed nginx is better to uninstall it

apt remove nginx nginx-*

Also not a bad idea to make a backup of the nginx folder under /etc. In principle, when updating 1.6.5 to 1.10.3 I didn't have drama, but you never know. New Partei are in the higher-level directory, and must be installed with a command like:

dpkg -i ../*.deb

If everything went smoothly, you just have to launch the nginx process, and to set http2 that is not the purpose of this article.

The collapse is not a word,
the collapse was premlata,
in fear, something you lose,
in fear, that has nothing.
Decay not in time,
what to leave you,
in that goodbye you make,
the breakup is, …
