I have read that I can do this to make a smaller footprint Nginx when used as static content cache/reverse proxy:
--without-mail_pop3_module --without-mail_imap_module --without-mail_smtp_module
What other options are safe to disable? SSI, FastCGI? Others? The only requirements for the reverse proxy is to be able to do https and gzip compression. Will disabling all the module really help with footprint and/or performance?
