How to install NGINX web server in oracle Linux cloud instance?


Step 1:

Login to oracle Linux instance using SSH client.

Step 2:

Enter the NGINX installation command as follows.

> sudo yum install nginx

If you face 'No package nginx available' error, we need to install the 'EPEL' repository.

To install the EPEL repo, use the below command.

We can install NGINX server once EPEL is installed .

Enter the command  'sudo yum install nginx' again.

Wait until the installation is complete.

Step 3:

We need to start the NGINX server once the installation is complete.

Also, we need to make NGINX startup as a service.So that we don't need to start the NGINX server manually after reboot.

Command to make the NGINX as a service is as follows.

> sudo systemctl enable --now nginx.service

Step 4:

Verify the NGINX server status using the following command.

> sudo systemctl status nginx

Step 5:

Add the HTTP firewall for port 80 using the below command.

> sudo firewall-cmd --add-service=http --permanent

Step 6:

Reload the firewall configuration using the following command.

> sudo firewall-cmd --reload
