        1. Tim,

          I checked and see that CentOS 8 already has Apache httpd 2.4.37 with big count of patches. mod_brotli and mod_http2 are included, OpenSSL 1.1.1 is now part of system in CentOS/RHEL 8.

          What exactly do you expect from CodeIT builds in this case?

          1. Not the original poster, but I sought after a more current version of mod_md which supports wildcard ACME – sadly this requires apache 2.4.41 and I hoped not to have to build everything myself.

  1. i’m use rocky linux and try to install nginx from codeit.guru but is always installed from rocky repo not from codeit.guru, how to make it enable and default?

    this my step:
    vi /etc/yum.repos.d/codeit.repo

    name=CodeIT mainline repo

    dnf update

    dnf install nginx

    nginx installed is 1.14 version not 1.21 from code.it

      1. Thank you very much!! its work, now nginx installed from codeit.guru

        nginx version: nginx/1.21.6
        built by gcc 8.5.0 20210514 (Red Hat 8.5.0-4) (GCC)
        built with OpenSSL 1.1.1k FIPS 25 Mar 2021
        TLS SNI support enabled

        Best Regards.

      2. every time i run command dnf update this error appear and i can’t install php

        Problem: module php:7.2:8040020210530192442:02bae935.x86_64 requires module(nginx), but none of the providers can be installed

        1. this error only happen with mainline version.
          tested with READY-TO-USE BINARY PACKAGES (EL8) is working fine, not error appear.

          1. Hi,
            Please also try to install remi php repo, as they have lot of different php versions with great backports.
            I think that the issue you have will be fixed by us using own nginx modules, but I do not have any ETA at the moment.

  2. i see you update your post with added repo for mainline version el8 rocky linux.
    great, so i not added manual for repo, just run :
    cd /etc/yum.repos.d && wget https://repo.codeit.guru/codeit.mainline.el8.repo && yum install -y epel-release && dnf disable module httpd nginx

    i was tested that repo and when run dnf install nginx, this error appear:

    Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job
    – nothing provides brotli >= 1.0.7 needed by nginx-1:1.21.6-1.codeit.el7.x86_64
    (try to add ‘–skip-broken’ to skip uninstallable packages or ‘–nobest’ to use not only best candidate packages)

  3. Hello,
    Do you have any plans of releasing HAProxy 2.5 with prometheus-exporter support for both el7/8?
