Hey all,
Just stumbled upon that https://www.pcre.org/ no longer allows the download of PCRE-8.45 via their FTP so I'm at a loss on how to building nginx from source. Their site describes that they now have PCRE2 but every search I have done on it says that NGINX requires PCRE version 8.X.

Has someone figured out how to build with PCRE2?

Is there a better secure mirror for PCRE?
