In order to bring things online quickly after migrating to DigitalOcean, I just installed Apache. I'm very familiar with it and have used it with success over the years. However, as this is a poor man's droplet ($5/mo, yo) resources are limited. With that in mind, I used my Train Time during my commute to NYC this morning to move everything over to nginx.
I've used nginx sparingly over the past few years so converting the virtual host entries over wasn't particularly painful. The only gotchas were remembering when to use
alias instead of
root and setting up a FastCGI server/wrapper (
fcgiwrap) for my Smokeping installation.
So far, so good; I may tweak the configuration here and there when I have a chance to review the documentation some more.
