How you doing all?
Recently, I've started to use NGINX in place of (or with) Apache.
First, I started on making few tests on NGINX performance..
My setup was a CentOS VPS + NGINX + Spawn-FCGI.
The benchmarks were amazing compared to Apache.
Now, I've done the migration to NGINX, on one of my Web servers Boxes.
That box setup is: Slackware 13.1 + NGINX + PHP 5.3.5 + PHP-FPM
I wonder now, which is better, for performance in the first place..
Is it the PHP-FPM, or the Spawn-fcgi ??
Also, I need a little help with some NGINX configs..
On my old setup when I was using Apache..
I had configured it to redirect ANY request to ANY file in one particular directory to another location, this is what I had in that directory .htaccess:
Assuming this direcoty located on:
RewriteRule (.*) http://xxxxxx.xxx/box1/$1 [R=301,L]
This redirect aims to reduce bandwidth consumption on that box, and redirect the traffic on that directory to a mirror of it on another server.
I couldn't really find or get any setting for NGINX that handle this redirect correctly..
Any Help will be more than appreciated..
