I'm running IPB on a single server environment is it worth the us of nginx in this kind of solutions?
any hint on how should I configure it?
It be usefull if your site has a lot of image content as it would be then cached. See if your website is mnot a very busy one then you will probably not see any difference, You may only notice on the server when it's been installed and getting hundreds of requests per second chucked at it.
Post your community link and I will look :)
Is there any available guide to configure Nginx for IP.Board? I am itching to try Nginx for my forum but I could not find an official guide from Invision.
yeah, is in this same forum, there are a few different configs, check them all and read the docs
For a much simpler setup for nginx, I'd suggest just moving apache to port 8080 or similar and have nginx reverse proxy to apache for anything not static. The setup will only take minutes (for someone who gets it). Much less likely to run into any problem this way because you ARE still running apache. Just need to add 1 line to IPB make sure that IPB gets the correct IP and not the proxy IP.
