Install the dependencies
OpenResty 126.96.36.199. Kong being an OpenResty application, you must follow the OpenResty installation instructions. You will need OpenSSL and PCRE to compile OpenResty, and to at least use the following compilation options:
$ ./configure \ --with-pcre-jit \ --with-ipv6 \ --with-http_realip_module \ --with-http_ssl_module \ --with-http_stub_status_module \ --with-http_v2_module
You might have to specify
--with-openssland you can add any other option you'd like, such as additional Nginx modules or a custom
$ export PATH="$PATH:/usr/local/openresty/bin"
Luarocks 2.4.3, compiled with the LuaJIT version bundled with OpenResty (See the
--with-lua-includeconfigure options). Example:
./configure \ --lua-suffix=jit \ --with-lua=/usr/local/openresty/luajit \ --with-lua-include=/usr/local/openresty/luajit/include/luajit-2.1
Now that OpenResty is installed, we can use Luarocks to install Kong's Lua sources:
$ luarocks install kong 0.13.1-0
$ git clone [email protected]:Mashape/kong.git $ [sudo] make install # this simply runs the `luarocks make kong-*.rockspec` command
Finally, place the
bin/kongscript in your
