First i have running my forum with a nginx webserver but with version 4 the SEO url rewriting doesn't work and as i know Google will downvote me if there are so complex url's as it is without the seo ;( Bug report: http://community.invisionpower.com/4bugtrack/401-nginx-seo-rewrite-url-rules-r5256/So please add nginx support as it is an very efficient, small, actual webserver used by every big company.
Second i think it would be better to give the incremental zips from the updater the name of the version it includes so no more folders like *(1), *(2), ...
This is a server config issue, there are many custom re-writes available in the server section here that you can read over and configure your server with.
Here are some links below, however this isn't a bug and not every big company uses nginx, of those using nginx, a lot of them are using apache+nginx for much better performance over ngnix alone. In doing so, you retain the ability to use .htaccess rules for apache, which is a big plus, and you get better performance by taking the strengths from both web servers and using each of them at their strengths.
Im running IPB 4.0.1 on the latest NGinX with SEO rewrite and have no problems at all - as above its all down to the server configuration and setup
If you need help then look for ASTRAPI on here as he does a lot of NGinx work and is very good at it
I was convinced of it, because the first supporter asked me to write down a feature request to add nginx so i thought it isn't really supported in v4 because v3 worked perfect with my configuration The problem was, that nginx doesn't used the try_files from the / location so there wasn't anything to rewrite for him in my test install ;( Thomas. tells me the obvious solution here
I know this solution of apache+nginx but in my case i doesn't need it and you only really need it when customers installs there scrips and didn't want to write it himself Rhett. But thanks for your answer in the ticket and here But what do you think from my second idea because the first is now obvious killed.
But now it works - thanks for your great support at night
.htaccess offers flexibility but kill performance !
