I'm trying to install nginx using the package manager. Usually I'd do this:

sudo apt-get install nginx

but I need nginx to have SSL support. I could compile nginx from source with SSL support, but I'd like to use a package manager just to make it easier to upgrade or remove if I need to.

Does the nginx package compile with SSL support or is there a way to make it?

The package nginx-full installs ssl support as well.

Please refer to this guide to configure your ssl

beware - nginx-full currently installs nginx 1.1.19 which is a couple of versions old. – outside2344 Feb 18 '14 at 2:17
