nginx (pronounced “engine x”) is an open-source web server and a reverse proxy server for HTTP, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols, with a strong focus on high concurrency, performance and low memory usage. It is licensed under a BSD-like license and it runs on Unix, Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and Microsoft Windows.

In this How-to post, we are going to install nginx on Manjaro. Since nginx is available via pacman, we only need one line command to get it installed.

Open Terminal:

sudo pacman -S nginx
[sudo] password for esn:
