Hello i miss some information how to :)

I installed page speed by using this tutorial
https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/module/build_ngx_pagespeed_from_source

Later by using Directadmin tutorial added custom module
http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=545

--add-module=/root/ngx_pagespeed-release-1.9.32.3-beta

[root@server ~]# nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/1.6.2
built by gcc 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-11) (GCC)
TLS SNI support enabled
configure arguments: --add-module=/root/ngx_pagespeed-release-1.9.32.3-beta --prefix=/usr/local/nginx --sbin-path=/usr/local/sbin/nginx --conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf --error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error.log --http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access.log --pid-path=/run/nginx.pid --with-ipv6 --lock-path=/run/lock/subsys/nginx --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_stub_status_module --with-http_gzip_static_module --with-http_realip_module --without-mail_pop3_module --without-mail_imap_module --without-mail_smtp_module --user=nginx --group=nginx --with-cc-opt=''-D FD_SETSIZE=32768''

"Download and build nginx with support for pagespeed:"
i downloaded it to
/root/nginx-1.6.3

how can i make directadmin to use this build?

#/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx -V

Returns
nginx version: nginx/1.6.3
built by gcc 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-11) (GCC)
configure arguments: --add-module=/root/ngx_pagespeed-release-1.9.32.3-beta

#nginx -v
nginx version: nginx/1.6.2

So i am have 2 versions of nginx.
How can i make to use
/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx

/usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx should not be used on DirectAdmin servers. "Download and build nginx with support for pagespeed:" is not a sentence from DA knowledgebase. You should always use CustomBuild (./build nginx) for that.

Thank YOU zEitEr!!!!!

Your message just inspired me to try it again :)
Just deleted everything... And started from 0.

And I made it finally. After I send my page to gtmetrix there was no message avoid css imports....
I dont know what i did wrong before... But after a clean install it is working now...

You are my hero zEitEr thanks:)

1st download and extract ngx_pagespeed

# cd
# NPS_VERSION=1.9.32.3
# wget https://github.com/pagespeed/ngx_pagespeed/archive/release-${NPS_VERSION}-beta.zip
# unzip release-${NPS_VERSION}-beta.zip
# cd ngx_pagespeed-release-${NPS_VERSION}-beta/
# wget https://dl.google.com/dl/page-speed/psol/${NPS_VERSION}.tar.gz
# tar -xzvf ${NPS_VERSION}.tar.gz

2nd make a copy of configure.nginx into /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/nginx

# cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
# mkdir -p custom/nginx
# cp -fp configure/nginx/configure.nginx custom/nginx/configure.nginx

3rd adding ngx_pagespeed module to /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/nginx/configure.nginx

# nano /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/custom/nginx/configure.nginx

#!/bin/sh
./configure \
"--add-module=/root/ngx_pagespeed-release-1.9.32.3-beta" \
"--user=nginx" \
"--group=nginx" \
"--prefix=/usr" \
"--sbin-path=/usr/sbin" \
"--conf-path=/etc/nginx/nginx.conf" \
"--pid-path=/var/run/nginx.pid" \
"--http-log-path=/var/log/nginx/access_log" \
"--error-log-path=/var/log/nginx/error_log" \
"--with-ipv6" \
"--without-mail_imap_module" \
"--without-mail_smtp_module" \
"--with-http_ssl_module" \
"--with-http_realip_module" \
"--with-http_stub_status_module" \
"--with-http_gzip_static_module" \

# ./build used_configs
# ./build nginx
# nginx -V

Module is added.

Directadmin>Admin Level>Custom HTTPD Configurations>

pagespeed on;
pagespeed FileCachePath /var/ngx_pagespeed_cache;
pagespeed EnableFilters flatten_css_imports;

it is custom/nginx_reverse for nginx as a reverse proxy of apache :)

now I'm trying to fix error
build_from_source=false
checking for psol ... not found
./configure: error: module ngx_pagespeed requires the pagespeed optimization library.
Look in /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/nginx-1.17.1/objs/autoconf.err for more details.

*** There was an error while trying to configure Nginx. Check the custom/nginx_reverse/configure.nginx file
PSOL is downloaded to folder with mod
