Hi, I am new to Nginx. Have gone through evanmiller blog and nginxguts to write my own module. Wrote a hello module which is working fine. I extended the hello module and in the http handler, it could start the thread. I have used pthread library for this. Now I want to start a thread of my own along with nginx and not with a http handler.
1. What modification is required to make it? 2. How to stop the thread when nginx is exiting? 3. Is there a different way of doing it other than pthread for a background activity.
