Error process:
Linux terminal run nginx configuration information: (after running, it is found that the last line needs to be modified)

./configure \

--lock-path=/var/lock/nginx.lock \
--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log \

(Modify the last line)

./configure \

--lock-path=/var/lock/nginx.lock \
--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log \

--http-scgi-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/scgi \

After modifying the last line and running again, the content shown in the error appears.

error information

./configure: error: the HTTP rewrite module requires the PCRE library.
You can either disable the module by using --without-http_rewrite_module
option, or install the PCRE library into the system, or build the PCRE library
statically from the source with nginx by using --with-pcre=<path> option.

Analysis of error content:
The reason is that the PCRE package is not installed, and you are not allowed to rewrite the previously configured content.

solution

Run the following installation command in Linux:

yum -y install pcre-devel

After the installation is complete, run your modified configuration information again

./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local/nginx \
--pid-path=/var/run/nginx/nginx.pid \
--lock-path=/var/lock/nginx.lock \
--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log \
--http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access.log \
--with-http_gzip_static_module \
--http-client-body-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/client \
--http-proxy-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/proxy \
--http-fastcgi-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/fastcgi \
--http-uwsgi-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/uwsgi \
--http-scgi-temp-path=/var/temp/nginx/scgi \
--add-module=/usr/local/software/fastdfs/fastdfs-nginx-module-1.22/src

In this way, the configuration information can run successfully
