No !!! As i wrote on the first page the setup is as follow:
IPTABLES roots external access to port 80 to port 8080 which is NGinx Listening Port.
>From then on either NGinx serves all the pages or proxy them to Apache depending on which Vhost is considered. So it's really Nginx proxying to Apache not the other way round. With this setup i can simply remove Nginx by just erasing the IPTABLES rule.

This setup has not been changed for months, and it works for every Nginx iteration up to 0.8.3, but fail with bind error on the 0.8.4 release.
