Topic: nginx with GeoIP

Bonjour,

There's no repository in the world that has nginx web server with built-in GeoIP module for RHEL\CentOS\Fedora.
NGINX is very fast and in many ways better than Apache as a front-end server, serving static content and handling TLS connections.
Currently Nginx is used by 24.6% of all the websites (according to W3Techs).
However, its architecture differs from Apache and it requires re-compilation if you want to add a module (instead of dynamic loading).
Building nginx from source is not an option for production servers.

So, I suggest to add an nginx package that was built with --with-http_geoip_module option. This will greatly benefit Remi's RPM repository as a source of up-to-date and useful web server software.
Among other options that the community may want is Google PageSpeed module, but this is up to community to decide.

I'm willing to provide all the necessary information and help.

Sorry, but my goal is "only" to be the a up-to-date sources for the PHP stack..
Which is already a huge task wink

I recommend you to file a bug against nginx component in Fedora/EPEL.

Desktop: Fedora 25 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 26 x86_64 + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 6.9 x86_64 + EPEL + remi + remi-php70
