I'd like to use ISPConfig3 on an Ubuntu server. I'd like to do this thing without using Apache at all. I'd really like to be able to set up python, ruby, php websites.

Is this possible? Specifically using python or ruby with ISPConfig3 sans Apache?

From their list of supported software, it looks like you can run nginx as your HTTP server instead if you want to avoid Apache.

True, I had read that, but that same site says ruby and python were apache only... – chiggsy Jun 6 '12 at 11:53
@chiggsy Huh.. strange! Those languages will certainly run within nginx - but it looks like you'd need to configure them outside of ispconfig, unfortunately. – Shane Madden Jun 6 '12 at 15:15

It's possible to run Python or Ruby, but not on build-in ISPConfig (w/ apache instead it seems to have the feature)

For Nginx this topic examples the django-way

In summary, you'll setup uwcgi to serve python and nginx to listen and to proxy uwcgi django or flask app.
