NGINX 1.25.3 Mainline with Brotli, TLS 1.3, OpenSSL 3.0.12, HTTP/2 and HTTP/3 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Rocky, Oracle, Alma Linux EL7/EL8/EL9

NGINX 1.25.3 mainline with HTTP/3 support added to EL7, EL8, EL9 repositories. brotli compression module from Google, http2, ngx cache purge and ngx http geoip2 modules added or built-in. OpenSSL built dynamically using OpenSSL+QUIC 3.0.12.

Major changes:

  • Changes and fixes in HTTP/2
  • Changes and fixes in HTTP/3

RHEL 7 / CentOS 7:

yum upgrade -y codeit-repo-release
yum-config-manager --disable CodeIT-quic --save
yum-config-manager --enable CodeIT-mainline --save

RHEL 8-9 / Alma Linux 8-9 / Rocky Linux 8-9 / CentOS 8-9 / Other EL8/EL9 repos are modular now.  To install nginx with HTTP/3 support, you need to enable the appropriate stream:

dnf module reset -y nginx
dnf module enable -y nginx:codeit-mainline

We build OpenSSL+QUIC 3.0 separately since v1.21.6, installing it separately to /lib64 with .so.81.3 suffix to ensure it won’t interfere with your system libraries.

Exerimental HTTP/3 support added in NGINX 1.25.0 Mainline. We build it with the corresponding module (—with-http_v3_module).

Apache httpd 2.4.58 with brotli support, TLS 1.3, OpenSSL 3.0.11 with http2, mod_http2 2.0.24 and ALPN for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7/8/9, CentOS 7, Alma Linux 8/9, Rocky Linux 8/9

Apache httpd 2.4.58-1 with brotli compression library from Google, TLS 1.3, http2 (HTTP/2) support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS 7/8, Alma Linux 8/9, Rocky Linux 8/9 added to repository. mod_http2 2.0.13 and mod_ssl are built dynamically against OpenSSL 3.0.11.

We build OpenSSL+QUIC 3.0.11 separately since v2.4.56-2, installing it separately to /lib64 with .so.81.3 suffix to ensure it won’t interfere with your system libraries. You can safely delete openssl111* packages. On EL8 and EL9 please enable httpd module:

dnf module enable httpd:codeit

Since 2.4.33 we added brotli compression library. Since 2.4.35 release we start building Apache httpd against OpenSSL 1.1.1*. Since 2.4.37 release TLS 1.3 final version (not to be confused with any draft versions) is supported and enabled by default. Please note that TLS 1.3 final version is supported in Chrome 70+ and Mozilla Firefox 63+. brotli support is already included in base RPM file. All you need is to add filters like
