Nginx more_set_input_headers throwing an error

id flag

i am running Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS. i am trying to upgrade my Nginix from nginx/1.10.3 to nginx/1.21.0.

when i run the upgrade and test the configuration file i get the below error

root@myserver:/home/myuser# nginx -t 
nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "more_set_input_headers" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/exchangeRP.conf:31 
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed 

This is whats i have in the conf file

more_set_input_headers 'Authorization: $http_authorization';

this option is working in v1.10.3 but not in 1.21.0 .

is there anything im missing?

Ubuntu 16.04 has reached it's end of life and does not receive any updates anymore. You should upgrade to a newer version, that way you'll also receiver the newer nginx versions.

You will need this external module:

If you are compiling from source -

If you are using distro packages -- they typically come in flavours e.g. minimal, full etc. Please check if you are installing the correct one.

ive checked the 1st link and i can see in the compatibility list that the last version thats its compatible with is 1.17.x . how ever i am currently running 1.21.0 . So i guess it will not be compatible?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
