I am using Passenger with nginx to serve my rails app on a virtual Slice host. I am considering putting a reverse proxy for serving static content as well as handling etagged actions.
Can I use my existing nginx installation and just change it to a reverse proxy? Do I even need a web server? What would a typical architecture look like in this case?
nginx rev-proxy -> nginx web server -> passenger?
nginx rev-proxy -> passenger?
Is nginx the best choice in this case?
Can my reverse proxy reside on the same Slice?
