Tengine is an Package:Nginx fork. It supports DSO module loading, meaning it can have external modules without the need to compile them in.


Shared & Static Modules

If you happen to want all modules installed dynamically, you, still, need to install some static modules. Make sure to add this to your /etc/portage/make.conf file:

/etc/portage/make.conf - Tengine all-modules build
TENGINE_SHARED_MODULES_HTTP="access addition autoindex browser charset_filter empty_gif fastcgi flv footer_filter geoip image_filter limit_conn limit_req lua map memcached mp4 random_index referer reqstat rewrite scgi secure_link slice split_clients sub sysguard tfs trim_filter upstream_ip_hash upstream_least_conn upstream_session_sticky user_agent userid_filter uwsgi xslt"
TENGINE_STATIC_MODULES_HTTP="concat dav degradation geo gunzip gzip gzip_static perl proxy realip spdy ssi ssl stub_status upstream-rbtree upstream_check upstream_consistent_hash upstream_keepalive"

External Modules

If you want to run passenger:

/etc/portage/make.conf - build the passenger module

Then, just:

# emerge tengine


Files for configuration are located at /etc/tengine

The major differing point in tengine from nginx is that you have to specifically declare which modules are loaded. Available modules are located at /var/lib/tengine/modules.

/etc/tengine/tengine.conf - DSO module statements
dso {
	load ngx_http_charset_filter_module.so;
	load ngx_http_fastcgi_module.so;
	load ngx_http_rewrite_module.so;


/etc/tengine/tengine.conf contains engine specific configurations.


/etc/tengine/sites-available/localhost has site specific configurations. Generally localhost is copied to domain.tld file formats in the /etc/tengine/sites-available/ directory.


Tengine does not natively support php, so we delegate that responsibility to php-fpm

/etc/tengine/sites-available/localhost - fpm tcp/ip configuration
server {
	index index.php index.cgi index.htm index.html;
	location ~ \.php$ {
		include fastcgi.conf;


To start the tengine server:

# rc-update add tengine default
# rc
