NGINX on ClearOS

Some work was started: https://gitlab.com/clearos/clearfoundation/app-nginx

How important is it to support NGINX on ClearOS?



  • More ongoing work
    • Needs to work with Let's Encrypt (ex.: so we can secure HTML5 sessions to Kimchi)
    • For Tiki, NGINX is not really supported but http://dev.tiki.org and http://doc.tiki.org run on NGINX so we know it works. This could be a suitable reason to improve Tiki to have good support on NGINX.
    • No support for Apache Tomcat java applet applications. However NGINX and Apache webservers can run side by side with nginx cleanly forward proxying to Apache Tomcat instances.
