Install without apache?

Question

I remember having froxlor installed a few years ago, and then I could install without apache, only using NGINX. Is that still possible, and if so, what is the procedure?

Frankly, if you want light-weight, you definitely don't want apache. In fact, after 15 years of using nginx, using both here and there for work, I fail to see what the advantage is of using apache at all.

sure it's still possible, the procedure depends on whether you are using the debian package or not. If yes, install nginx prior to the froxlor package.

 

I did install nginx prior to froxlor, added your apt repo for deb11, but I still get:

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  apache2 apache2-bin apache2-data apache2-utils bind9 bind9-utils courier-authlib dns-root-data dovecot-core dovecot-imapd dovecot-mysql dovecot-pop3d expect froxlor galera-4 gawk goaccess libaio1 libapache2-mod-php7.4 libapr1 libaprutil1 libaprutil1-dbd-sqlite3 libaprutil1-ldap

  proftpd-doc proftpd-mod-mysql python3-ply socat ssl-cert tcl-expect tcl8.6

So no, it still tries to install apache. What is the way NOT to have apache included?

The control file in our package:

Depends: [...], apache2 | lighttpd | nginx, [...]

The docs from debian:
 

In the Depends, [...] control fields of the package, which declare dependencies on other packages, the package names listed may also include lists of alternative package names, separated by vertical bar (pipe) symbols |. In such a case, that part of the dependency can be satisfied by any one of the alternative packages.

 

Need to check whether this happens for me too, but used to work without issues
