Moodle runs just fine (as fine as it can, I am not a fan)

I don't think it requires anything special off the top of my head. If
it supports friendly URLs, then you'd need to add in whatever rewrite
for that.

nginx doesn't handle it, it proxies the FastCGI request off. I
recommend PHP-FPM. I have used this combo for years, and Moodle
underneath that as well for probably going on two years now.
