Understand the default NGINX configuration

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and Mac OS X) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). Learn more.

The default configuration file for NGINX is located at installdir/nginx/conf/nginx.conf. Change the port using the listen directive:

listen 1234;

NGINX was compiled to include most popular extensions: compression options, Passenger module for Ruby applications and PageSpeed module.
