nginx compile from source vs yum?

Hey guys,

I've been using nginx with virtualmin for a few months now, and it has been my default setup for my servers. I was wondering, would there be any issue if I compile nginx from source instead of using repository/yum installs?

My main concern is the file paths and nginx modules required with virtualmin. So far, I only see that https module should be there. I'm also trying to use modsecurity with nginx, that's why the source way is the only option.

Please let me know what issues should I prepare for if I do this.
