Installation

Please see Solaris 10u5 for a detailed walkthrough, this is the bare essentials for installing nginx on Solaris 11. Solaris 11 has much improved versions of PCRE and OpenSSL so it's not required to install them manually.

Install packages

pkg install gcc-45
pkg install system/header
pkg install make
pkg install pcre

Fetch and compile nginx

wget http://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.0.15.tar.gz
tar xvzpf nginx-1.0.15.tar.gz
cd nginx-1.0.15
./configure --prefix=/opt/nginx --with-cpu-opt="amd64" --with-ipv6 --with-http_ssl_module
make
make install

Startup script

Same as Installing_on_Solaris_10_u5.

Create the file /lib/svc/method/svc-nginx with the following content:

#!/bin/sh
NGINX_CMD="/opt/nginx/sbin/nginx"
NGINX_CONF="/opt/nginx/conf/nginx.conf"
RETVAL=0
start() {
   echo "Starting Nginx Web Server: \c"
   $NGINX_CMD -c $NGINX_CONF &
   RETVAL=$?
   [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && echo "ok" || echo "failed"
   return $RETVAL
}
stop() {
   echo "Stopping Nginx Web Server: \c"
   NGINX_PID=`ps -ef |grep $NGINX_CMD |grep -v grep |awk '{print $2}'`
   kill $NGINX_PID
   RETVAL=$?
   [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && echo "ok" || echo "failed"
   return $RETVAL
}
case "$1" in
   start)
      start
      ;;
   stop)
      stop
      ;;
   restart)
      stop
      start
      ;;
   *)
      echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
      exit 1
esac
exit $RETVAL

Create the manifest (almost same but correct typo in stability to "Stable" with a capital S, and new version number.

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<!DOCTYPE service_bundle SYSTEM "/usr/share/lib/xml/dtd/service_bundle.dtd.1"> 
<service_bundle type='manifest' name='nginx'> 
  <service name='network/nginx' type='service' version='1'>
    <create_default_instance enabled='false' /> 
    <single_instance />
    <exec_method type='method' name='start' exec='/lib/svc/method/svc-nginx start' timeout_seconds='60'/>
    <exec_method type='method' name='stop' exec='/lib/svc/method/svc-nginx stop' timeout_seconds='60' />
    <exec_method type='method' name='restart' exec='/lib/svc/method/svc-nginx restart' timeout_seconds='60' /> 
    <stability value='Stable' /> 
    <template> 
      <common_name>
        <loctext xml:lang='C'> Nginx 1.0.15 </loctext> 
      </common_name>
      <documentation> 
        <manpage title='nginx' section='8' manpath='/usr/share/man' /> 
      </documentation>
    </template>
  </service>
</service_bundle>

Set the permissions and import it

chown root:bin /lib/svc/method/svc-nginx && chmod 555 /lib/svc/method/svc-nginx
chmod 444 /var/svc/manifest/network/nginx.xml
chown root:sys /var/svc/manifest/network/nginx.xml
svccfg -v import /var/svc/manifest/network/nginx.xml
svcadm enable nginx
