sorry for english.
i am on centos 64 bit server with cpanel and whm.
i have apache 2.2.18 and there is heavy duty use of the following:
1. mod rewrite
2. mod geoip
3. mod security (with rules available in 2.6.0 for google safe browsing
4. mod evasive
5. php5 functionality with memcached + eaccelerator
for #1, i see from threads on this phorum that some rewriting
functionality is possible. i also see that in 1.0.3 the #2 of geoip is
but i am not sure about 3, 4 and 5. nginx does not support DDOS
protection right? also, will all the php5 modules work with pecl such as
in trying to set up nginx, i have problem getting php to work. mod fcgi
-- is there simple instruction about how to do, and how is the
performance when compared to apache+eaccelerator which opcode caches?
because of this functionality, i don't want to move entire to nginx.
so i am trying this: nginx run on localhost on port 81. apache is main
front server on port 80. all static content from images folder need to
pass to nginx. i am trying this code in apache:
ProxyPass /mysite/images http://0.0.0.0:81/
ProxyPassReverse / http://0.0.0.0:81/
But this is not working.
Nginx root folder is "/mysite/images". And when I type in browser
http://MYDOMAIN.COM:81 then I can see the nginx working fine. the images
any idea about how i can make this setup work?
or ideally, over time i want to move entirely to nginx. so would
appreciate some experienced thought or guidance.
