I seem to have zero trouble running WordPress under nginx, save for any attempts to auto-update WordPress itself. I'm able to update plugins easily. When I attempt this with WordPress core, I'm show a white page.
I checked nginx's error logs and I don't see anything funny, but I may not be looking at the correct logs. Virtualmin points me to an error one and an access log. Neither report any funny business. Googling has yielded little, so I feel this must be something localized to my setup.
Here's what I'm running: WordPress 3.4 PHP Version: 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.17 MySQL Version: 5.1.63-0ubuntu0.10.04.1 Server Software: nginx/0.7.65
I'm also using W3 Total Cache 0.9.2.4, fwiw.
Should I look at permissions? nginx confs? I think I just need a solid direction, and I can run with it from there.
