Hi Gena and Maxim,Thank you both for the  quick response.
I must add that the application is hosted on a remote server which I do 
not have control over. So updating to the latest CentOS is not an option 
and if you think otherwise please let me know.
I would be glad if you can point me to resources on how I can recompile 
nginx *without* --with-file-aio configure  since I am not an expect on 
compiling nginx, and its looks like its my only option in this case.
