nginx on Windows
July 10, 2018 12:50PM
Hello all,

I was wondering if there was any up-to-date documentation about running nginx on Windows in a production environment. The official documentation here (https://nginx.org/en/docs/windows.html) notes some pretty serious limitations but its last update was 18 months ago and its last major revision was in 2012. For instance, is the 1024 connection limit still around and would nginx on Windows still be characterized as beta software?

Thanks,
Kevin Mark

Yes, this limit is still present.

I would say we have an experimental support and this experiment
almost stalled years ago.

In the same time we heard about many cases when people use nginx for
Windows in production[*].

* Definition of "production" may vary significantly.

Best Nginx for windows builds around :) love itpp2012's work.

He also fixed the concurrent connection limitations and continuously ads
modules like Lua for Nginx into his builds what are stable and production
ready.

Nginx.org should make him the maintainer and dev for windows builds in my
opinion.



Openresty who built Lua for Nginx has Windows builds of Nginx but i don't
know if they have fixed the concurrent connection limitations.

These are the only two i am aware of i would recommend itpp2012's builds
mostly because i have used run and tested them.
