15 hours in and can't setup Nginx w/mod_pagespeed + Varnish. Is it supposed to be like this?

First of all, thank you a lot for this amazing community, you’re great!

I’m trying to make this setup: NGINX w/Pagespeed + Varnish + MariaDB + PHP7 + Redis, PHP-FPM for WordPress.

But I’m stuck at installing nginx + pagespeed! Not even talking about Varnish.

Using this manual from google, I receive the following when using sudo make install:

~/nginx-1.13.3# sudo make install
make -f objs/Makefile install
make[1]: Entering directory '/root/nginx-1.13.3'
test -d '/usr/local/nginx' || mkdir -p '/usr/local/nginx'

        || mv '/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx' \

I do not see an error in the output you provided.

However you can follow this tutorial to add pagespeed module to nginx.

Hope this helps.
