As providers of artificial intelligence services, we at Oodles employ NGINX to build and deploy dynamic machine learning applications including prediction, classification, and more.
In the IT industry, not every business uses the traditional way of software installation in the server (Linux) viz package installation using a command like apt-get or yum.
So what they do? As we know software like Nginx is open-source so anyone can get its source code. So we use that source code, compile them and then install the software in the system and this is called “source installation”. But after compilation of this type of installation, we did not get the directory structure as we get with the traditional installation (by apt-get or yum). This might be slightly confusing for those who used to install via “yum” or “apt-get”.
Here are simple steps in source installation that can be used to provide you the same familiar Nginx directory structure as we get in a traditional installation.
Now after all these setups, if you try to look the Nginx directory in /etc/nginx then it will not look as familiar as you expected. The main reason is that you don’t have those three directories that used most i.e “conf.d”, “sites-available” and “sites-enabled”.

Once installed, NGINX is a great proxy tool for building multiple web apps encompassing machine learning, predictive analytics, and computer vision services.
