DirectAdmin Knowledge Base and Support

DirectAdmin is a web panel for a simple administration of both virtual and dedicated servers. DirectAdmin is faster, safe and more powerful than any other CP. And we know how to customize and support it.

NGINX 1.13.0 with TLSv1.3 on Directadmin Server

| 12:23:48 18.05.2017

NGINX 1.13.0 mainline version has been released on 2017-04-25 with a support of TLSv1.3. And while we are waiting for an official release of OpenSSL 1.1.1 we describe here on how to get it working on Directadmin server with custombuild 2.0.

NGINX (reverse proxy) with TLSv1.3

First we need to install additional script which will allow to install nginx mainline version on Linux server with DA:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
wget -O ./build_nginx
chmod 755 ./build_nginx
./build_nginx versions

Install custom version of configure script for NGINX to get it compiled against OpenSSL 1.1.1:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
mkdir -p custom/nginx_reverse/
cp -p custom/nginx_reverse/configure.nginx custom/nginx_reverse/configure.nginx~bak
wget -O custom/nginx_reverse/configure.nginx
chmod 755 custom/nginx_reverse/configure.nginx

Install custom version of nginx-defaults.conf for NGINX to get TLSv1.3 enabled:

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
mkdir -p custom/nginx_reverse/conf/
cp -p custom/nginx_reverse/conf/nginx-defaults.conf custom/nginx_reverse/conf/nginx-defaults.conf~bak
wget -O custom/nginx_reverse/conf/nginx-defaults.conf

Rebuild NGINX

cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
./build update
./build_nginx install
./build rewrite_confs

Check results

# nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/1.13.0
built by gcc 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-18) (GCC)
built with OpenSSL 1.1.1-dev  xx XXX xxxx
TLS SNI support enabled

That's it
