I am trying to set up a nginx server to support chunking. I followed the
steps mentioned in the below webpage to use the feature

My nginx version is 1.4.1. According to the above link, I don¹t need to
build chunking module separate as it is already built into the core. But I
am getting below error in my logs when I start nginx service

2014/11/26 12:39:03 [emerg] 14634#0: unknown directive "chunkin" in

Below is my server configuration

server {


       server_name   test-lnx;

       chunkin on;

       location /images/ {

         root   /opt;


Find below the output for nginx command for ­v and ­V options.

[root at test-lnx sbin]# ./nginx -v
nginx version: nginx/1.4.1

[root at test-lnx sbin]# ./nginx -V

nginx version: nginx/1.4.1

built by gcc 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-3) (GCC)

TLS SNI support enabled

configure arguments: --user=nginx --group=nginx
--prefix=/usr/local/panorama/nginx --lock-path=/var/lock/subsys/nginx
--without-http_autoindex_module --without-http_fastcgi_module
--with-http_ssl_module --without-http_geo_module
--without-http_empty_gif_module --without-http_ssi_module
--without-http_userid_module --without-mail_pop3_module
--without-mail_imap_module --without-mail_smtp_module
--without-http_uwsgi_module --without-http_scgi_module
--with-http_realip_module --with-http_gzip_static_module

Do I need to explicitly any options to use Chunkin module? Is there anything
wrong with my configuration.
