So I’m following this article: https://thethemefoundry.com/blog/why-we-dont-use-a-cdn-spdy-ssl/
I’m lost on this paragraph:
“we jumped into manually compiling Nginx with the mainline version of the package. We used Nginx 1.5.9 (to avoid the “large certificate” bug), compiled against OpenSSL 1.0.1e (to enable NPN), and enabled Perfect Forward Secrecy”
Is SPDY something that’s already included with Nginx by default? Has this “large certificate” bug been fixed in subsequent versions? Also not sure about OpenSSL 1.0.1e and Perfect Forward Secrecy.
Is this something I can use some sort of apt-get command for?
If not, what’s the best way to compile Nginx with the set up as described above?
FYI I’m using the latest version of Ubuntu offered here at the moment: 14.04.
Thanks in advance for your help.
