Hi ! Thanks a lot for your explanation ! Well I've installed some Nginx
servers all cases like configured like Proxy Reverse, But, at first I
installed Nginx from pages different from but the source were get
from nginx too (i think) and cases like nginx.conf is happening, different
files with and other sources and for example that directories
like sites-available and sites-enabled are missing after installation:
e.g. /etc/nginx/sites-available and /etc/nginx/sites-enabled are not in
installation from and as you say I could configure them to my own
target, but in these cases I must install Nginx + ModSecurity + OWASP (CRS)
because we must have the most security network with web pages to publicate.
So, is there any configuration that you could recommend me?
Another point too, I read the book about Nginx+Modsecurity from these book

And I couldn't find in which directories of linux is installed Nginx, in my
cases Nginx and OWASP is in /usr/local/src but in the moment where I must
compile Nginx there is error about module
*"./configure: error: ngx_http_modsecurity_module requires the ModSecurity

Well I hope all these words don't disturb you at all, please sorry and any
word you can tell me about this, I will be so grateful. Thanks a lot,
greetings from Argentina.
