This bug is being marked as "Incomplete", and will need updating. I am replacing this with 1.4.1-1 from Debian Unstable, which fixes a security bug in 1.4.0 which I had previously uploaded (1.4.1 was not yet available when I uploaded yesterday). I am currently building 1.4.1-1 in my testing PPA, before importing those into the Stable PPA.

If this bug still exists in 1.4.1 please change the bug back to "New", or add a comment here.

Is there a plan to include nginx-big-upload ( into the package as the replacement for nginx-upload? It would be nice if ngix-extras keeps the feature.

The nginx-upload module was removed in 1.4.0-2, which I had uploaded and replaced with 1.4.1-1.


The below is an excerpt from the Debian changelog on the issue:

nginx (1.4.0-2) experimental; urgency=low


  [ Kartik Mistry ]
  * debian/modules/nginx-upload:
    + This module no longer works with 1.3.x and above. Removed as of now.



I would suggest that you suggest this at the Debian upstream, if they include it in a version of nginx released to Debian, then I will update the PPA here to include that.

Until I get such a statement that it works with 1.4.1 and it's approved in the Debian packaging, I will add the module here. (I'm trying NOT to have a delta between Debian and here (for stable branch) except for necessary bugfixes).


I will modify the nginx-extras package to have a package description change to remove the listing of the upload module from it.

1.4.0 is now obsolete as the stable branch is 1.6.x. Marking as "Won't Fix" because of this.
