Installing NGiNX on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Add the following urls to your sources.list file:

Close and save the file.  Then run the following commands:

That simple.  Next comes Configuring NGiNX.

Editing Ubuntu sources.list

The sources.list is a text file on a Debian derived Linux distributions.  Aptitude (apt-get) uses this list of servers as locations from which to retrieve software. To add to this you must be logged into a terminal.  Have ready and know how to use a simple terminal text editor such as nano or vi. Open the sources.list file in your text editor.  I prefer nano text editor so the command will look like:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

You must sudo this command unless you’re already switched to the super user account via: ‘sudo -s’.  Now add or delete any lines you need to, then save.  The next apt-get command you run will now pull from these servers.
