upgrade nginx in ubuntu 8.04

Asked by John on 2009-08-26

I know Hardy Ubuntu 8.04 aptitude comes with 0.5.33 but instead I would like to upgrade this version to either the 6 series or the latest 7 stable series.

I can't find any help in ubuntuforum, ruby forum. May someone guide me through this?
I have already installed 0.5.33

Thank you

run:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

and add the following lines to the bottom of the file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/andreserl/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Has nginx - 0.7.61-1. You will need this key (copy the code to a text file and save it to you home directory, then run:

sudo apt-key add <file you just made>

You need the lines starting with ---------------

You can now run:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

and get the new version. They also have a karmic repo

using this update will not destroy anything - but to update the nignx only - am i correct? just like upgrading ubuntu base system

John (jwxinst) said : #3

I tried it and no update / upgrade promoted - still 0.5.33

i just want to upgrade from 0.5.33 to something else because apparently some of my re-write rules doesn';t work and i want to upgrade it to see if the nginx version affects the rule...

This is what i get running upgrade abd update

Get:3 http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty/main Packages [4753B]

that's it.... nothing special

You will also gain access to the other applications that the user has published on the PPA. There is no assuredness of anything with PPA as they are unofficial debs.

How do you mean by "destroy"?

You can use http://ppa-search.appspot.com to search PPAs here on launchpad to see who has what packages and add their PPA to your system.

Can you help with this problem?
