How to add fastcgi support to nginx?

Alex Jolig asked:

I’m trying to setup roundcube in my server with nginx on CentOS.

this tutorial says:

Add the following to the bottom of /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params:

# Roundcube config
fastcgi_keep_conn on;
fastcgi_split_path_info       ^(.+.php)(.*)$;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO       $fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param PATH_TRANSLATED    $document_root$fastcgi_path_info;

But I’m getting this error trying to restart nginx service

unknown directive "fastcgi_keep_conn" in /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params:26

I googled it and this answer says:

seems that nginx was built without fastcgi support

But I can’t figure out how to make nginx supports fastcgi

Anyone can tell me how?

My answer:


The documentation states:

This directive appeared in version 1.1.4.

With version 1.0.15, you won’t be able to use it.

You can either upgrade nginx, or omit the directive.
