comment Nginx reverse proxy using try_files is serving php files unparsed
Haha, oops, I'll fix that ASAP and see how it goes! I had originally ran nginx on 81 to leave apache on 80 as it was originally. That'll teach me to DRY.

comment nginx passing all requests to proxy
Nginx is configured to use the same user www-data as apache, and if I disable the proxy_pass then Nginx serves the static files. I'll try as you suggest though thanks.

comment Web server taking up to 800 requests per second after newsletter sendout, with relatively few newsletter views / clicks
@womble Mailchimp is only recording 100 newsletter views, which would surely be triggering if people were viewing the newsletters, whether in spam or not. Unrelated: The site sells no product, newsletter signup is only done directly via the subscribe form, there's no tricking people to subscribe here.

@Chopper3 it's very CDNable, yes, but I doubt the client is willing to pay for the service. I suspect we'll end up running 2 webservers, 1 to catch static asset requests, and then pass on page requests to the 2nd web server.

The views and clicks are reported by Mailchimp, which I'm fairly sure inserts a non-cacheable image like you say. The reason another server was used is because it was handy to make use of in a short time frame.
