I'm about to embark on creating 12000 vhosts

Hi Andreas,

Good to hear that this is scaling well for you at this level.

With regards to reload, you mean a reload rather than a restart I take it? We'll be load balanced and building these from config and deployment management systems so a long reload/restart is not the end of the world as we can build a patched box and take out an old unpatched machine.

Kind regards,

have come across.


we're running nginx (latest) with ~5k domains + 5k



without issues. Configuration file is created by configuration management system.

Currently nginx only serve https and proxy to a apache at localhost.

Funfact: nging reload that number of vhost + certificates

faster then apache simply handling only plain http :-)
