In the last slide, we saw that NGINX offers many different products via the default Helm Chart repository, but the NGINX standalone web server is not one of them.
After a quick web search, we discover that there is a Chart for the NGINX standalone web server available via the Bitnami Chart repository.
To add the Bitnami Chart repo to our local list of searchable charts:
helm repo add bitnami https://charts.bitnami.com/bitnami
Once that completes, we can search all Bitnami Charts:
helm search bitnami
Which results in:
Search once again for NGINX:
helm search nginx
Now we are seeing more NGINX options, across both repositories:
Or even search the Bitnami repo, just for NGINX:
helm search bitnami/nginx
Which narrows it down to NGINX on Bitnami:
In both of those last two searches, we see
as a search result. That’s the one we’re looking for, so let’s use Helm to install it to the EKS cluster.
