i have a system with just a few users with some homedirectories
(no php in home area). so because I have more than 1 single site, I
should not use nginx? Reasons I needed nginx were due to lousy apache
performance. Perhaps NGINX should support such setups better. Lighttpd
is of course available, but i had read good things about nginx (and the
performance has been very impressive)

the lack of documentation when functionality has changed is a bit of an
issue. this used to work, now it doesnt. Would be great if it said that
somewhere. I realise there are some language barriers, but there are
enough users of NGINX now that things like this need to be addressed.
