hi! this weekend was a bit hot for me, cause i decided to implement Front-end and back-end architecture on my home server (my home machine is, usually, platform for many tests about performance or new technology stuff, that i after use at work).
so i wanted it. and i decided that it will be nginx as front, and my old friend apache as back.
why nginx? i saw that many internet projects i track in my day job (especially at .ru zone) uses it. one thing that i want to mention, that it not so many docs in english, but you always can ask somebody.
very useful was getting started from nginx's author. but it's not always enough - Using Nginx As Reverse-Proxy Server On High-Loaded Sites (russian version) and Заметки о ipb, apache, nginx can solve you too.
after day and a half, i win ;-) and now i has tuned nginx+apache for my 4 virtual hosts. in next article, i will post about install process (and probably after tuning).
