I would like to know if it is possible to compile and distribute a
standalone version of nginx.
I have a web application, which normally only runs on the localhost and
is not accessible from outside.

This application is used to create files and folders in a given folder.
I want the user to start a standalone
server, let's say on port 8080 and be able to work with the app.

The main reason for this is to be able to distribute a per-built version
on nginx (with PHP and
database support), without the need to ask the users to compile and
configure the server themselves.

The "standalone" server needs to run under the users account to be able
to access and create files/folders.

Any suggestions is very much appreciated.
