RISC-V Public Beta Platform Released · First Web Server “Hello RISC-V world!”

RISC-V Public Beta Platform Web Server address:


A web server is the foundation of internet applications, playing a crucial role in user website access as well as backend services and application development by providers and developers.

It is evident that a web server is also an essential part of the RISC-V ecosystem.

Next, we will briefly introduce how to deploy a web service based on Nginx on the RISC-V platform. You are also welcome to visit the link above to check out our web page.

Part 1: Web Overview

Part 2: Platform Environment

Processor: SG2042 Linux Version: Ubuntu 22.10 gcc Version: 12.2.0(GNU) Server: Nginx

Part 3: Setup Steps

  1. Download Nginx Source Code Download the Nginx source code from the Nginx official website or GitHub repository and extract it.

wget http://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.20.1.tar.gz

  1. Configure Compilation Options In the extracted /nginx-1.25.0 directory, run the configure script to configure the compilation options for Nginx.

You can use the --prefix option to specify the installation directory for Nginx and use --with to add additional modules.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/nginx --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_gzip_static_module
  1. Compile and Install Run the following command to compile Nginx and install it to the specified directory (–prefix specified).
sudo make install

After installation, the content in the directory should be as follows:

  1. Start Nginx Use the following command to start Nginx:
cd /usr/local/nginx/sbin
sudo ./nginx -c

After successful startup, if you can see the following interface in the browser address bar, it means that Nginx has been successfully started:

After completing the above steps, you can freely DIY your own web!


We have established the “Hello RISC-V world!” web as a milestone, and we also want to encourage more developers to come to our RISC-V Public Beta Platform and build more interesting and meaningful web servers.
