    Arrow Request Help installing Nginx by replacing Apache


    Hi All,

    I like to install Nginx on a live server running apache with plesk control panel running on it.

    I want to replace apache with Nginx. Can anybody guide me how to proceed ?

    It is a live production server.So i have to workout fully before proceeding.

    Waiting for your valuable replies.

    Regards
    Rajesh

    Well, the first recommendation would be to *not* do that on a live system.
    Second: Be sure of your reasons to switch:
    Which needed features are available on nginx and not apache (and vice versa)?

    Then get a list of features, that you currently use on the apache:
    - rewriterules. The syntax in nginx is different, you need to rewite them from scratch
    - php/perl/etc?
    - virtualhosts, aliases
    - access control, etc
    - etc

    In short: Analyze the requirements of your web applications (other than plesk, see below) and *test*, if they can run on nginx.


    Also:
    I dont use plesk, so I am not 100% sure.
    But looking at that
    Documentation - Parallels Plesk Panel Suite
    and not finding nginx mentioned there, I think you wont have too much luck in running plesk.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
