VestaCP nginx instead of apache for a site

Postby erkinakbudak » Sat Sep 03, 2016 1:46 am

Hi. I use VestaCP. I am running debian 7. I have many sites. All sites use apache + nginx (reverse proxy). I want just nginx for a site but other sites will use apache + nginx. Is it possible ? Thanks in advance

Is there a solution to the original poster's request? I, too, have websites that use apache, but would like specific sites use only nginx. Any help is appreciated!

Yes, it is possible. You can simply use custom nginx conf to your custom site; though, everything has to be done manually from the terminal.

Take a look at /etc/nginx.conf, and notice that the last line include file from /etc/nginx/conf.d folder.

Code: Select all

include             /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;


This mean that you can create custom yoursite.com.conf inside of /etc/nginx/conf.d folder. It may look something like this: https://gist.github.com/chadrien/5394508

This is how VestaCP does it. It has it's own custom nginx-server.conf which is setup on port 8083. It is using php-fpm instead of nginx -> apache -> fcgi for regular sites.
