Nginx-logo

nginx (pronounced “engine-x”) is an open source Web server and a reverse proxy server for HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and IMAP protocols, with a strong focus on high concurrency, performance and low memory usage. It is licensed under a BSD-like license and it runs on Unix, Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX and Microsoft Windows [WikiPedia]

These are my reusable settings for any Joomla hosting, these are the most secure, and fastest settings to the best of my knowledge.

Configuration files are provided using Gist&160; and are CONSTANTLY updated for added security and speed. Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others. All gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository. I recommend you to starred them to stay up to date.

Joomla.conf for nginx

Create a new directory nginx/conf to be able to place reusable nginx settings:

mkdir -p /etc/nginx/conf

vi /etc/nginx/conf/joomla.conf

Edit or create joomla.conf, you can find the latest joomla.conf documented version in one of my Gist at https://gist.github.com/1620307

Adding a new Joomla Site to nginx

Create required directory anywhere on your disk, here is an example with a domain www.example.com

mkdir -p /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs
mkdir -p /var/www/vhosts/example.com/logs

Set the right permission to the user and group you have defined in nginx.conf

chown -fR www-data:www-data /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs

Copy the nginx template and adapt to your liking

cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/default /etc/nginx/sites-available/example
vi /etc/nginx/sites-available/example

Edit or create example, you can find the latest file example documented version in one of my Gist at https://gist.github.com/1620307

this file include Joomla.conf to avoid duplicating nginx settings

Activate the new domain

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/example /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/example
service nginx restart
