I'm about a month young at linux and brand new to ubuntu.

I can do this to install hiphop https://github.com/facebook/hiphop-php/wiki/Building-and-installing-HHVM-on-Ubuntu-12.04

(I installed JEMalloc 3.0 b/c it was there)

But I'm not too sure how to install nginx with these options https://github.com/facebook/hiphop-php/wiki/Using-nginx-as-front-server-to-HipHop with spdy http://nginx.org/patches/spdy/README.txt.

Can anyone show me how to combine those two nginx installs with a self-signed cert and a purchased?

Many thanks in advance!

Looks like I was confusing the problems I'm having with this HipHop server error with the nginx installation.

There were no errors when I followed these steps http://nginx.org/patches/spdy/README.txt but added the ./configure from https://github.com/facebook/hiphop-php/wiki/Using-nginx-as-front-server-to-HipHop. Then make && make install.

those instructions are missing so much stuff.

you gotta setup LD_LIBRARY_PATH in /etc/environment


download all those libs into /usr/local/src

set prefix not to $CMAKE whatever is there but to /usr/local

and compile with CLANG / LLVM goes much faster.

of course you gotta setup those too in /etc/environment

CPP=/usr/bin/clang -E

you mind providing a detailed step by step? i don't care anymore as i've moved on to fastcgi++/websocket++ (which i totally recommend), but i think there might be others, so i'll give check for details. then again, considering the views & votes on this q, looks like hiphop might not be catching on –  Gracchus May 11 '13 at 14:14
