I'd like to run nginx with ssl on 18.06. However in that release, the nginx package is built without ssl.
I am aware of the risks involved in running additional internet exposed services on my router. A) I have some mitigations in mind. B) I accept that I can suffer the consequences.
I've seen somewhere that 19.07 will have nginx-ssl available, however it's not clear when this will happen - I would cheerfully run my router with an RC.
I can easily create a virtual machine running Ubuntu or Debian.
Are there instructions anywhere on how to create an environment to build a package, not a full flashable ROM?
Is it possible to create an environment to build a package that will install and run in 18.06 but with the latest development sources of nginx?
Once I've built nginx-ssl, how do I install it in a plain 18.06 router?
Are there other concerns about build and install?
