Will Plesk 10.4.4 work with Nginx instead of Apache?

    Hi all,

    Got Plesk 10.4.4 running on a VPS with CentOS 5. Can I somehow completely swap out Apache and replace with Nginx webserver?

    Or does Apache HAVE to remain running and I can only use Nginx as static content server?

    If yes to either of those, are there any instructions anywhere please, relevant to Plesk 10?

    Many Thanks,
    Alex

    I can't imagine Plesk to have nginx support and if they did it would be in their specs.

    You can install nginx as a reverse proxy.
    I would leave the settings of Plesk alone in that case.

    With iptables you can redirect traffic going to port 80 to the nginx-proxy.
    You also need to install mod_rpaf to get the original IP in your logs.

    I'm running varnish and pound myself.

    Thank you but that describes how to install Varnish with Plesk 10.3

    I want to know about Nginx - something completely different!

    different, but not completely different.
    They are both caching reverse proxies.....
    I thought you were still interested in using it as such.

    If you want Nginx as a replacement for Apache then I think you need to wait for that version 11
    It needs a complete overhaul of all the scripts that is in fact Plesk.

    Don't expect the first versions to work properly....
