Does anyone know how to set up Nginx alongside Apache in Plesk 9.3. I want to serve my dynamic content from Apache and the static content from Nginx.

I read that there is a new configuration setting in Plesk 9.3 where you can do that, but I can't find an explanation on how to do so.

I run CentOS 5.

"Apache Port Change" chapter of "Advanced Administration Guide" from Plesk documentation should get you started.

It's not just a simple setting which can be enabled though - requires quite a bit to reconfigure/check.

update: it would help if you let us know what exactly is the problem now? which step are you stuck on?

  1. nginx installation
  2. changing HTTP/HTTPS ports which are generated by Plesk using websrvmng, i.e. moving Apache to the back-end - described in the document
  3. nginx configuration and setting up event handlers in Plesk - see examples in the document

this blog post might be useful as well, without part "3. Configuring Apache" - because this can now be done automatically in Plesk 9.3.

  • I read that there is a configuration in the documentation, but there is no explanation on how to do it. It would be silly to post the question without checking the documentation. – Saif Bechan Mar 11 '10 at 15:53
  • sorry, but it was not clear from your question that you saw that document. I updated the answer. – realaaa Mar 12 '10 at 1:58
  • I am stuck on the first part really. I don't know how to install nginx for PLESK. Or can i just follow a basic instalation tutorial. – Saif Bechan Mar 14 '10 at 12:17
  • i don't think there is some special nginx for Plesk, so you should just use nginx RPMs for CentOS, I'm pretty sure they are available either from CentOS or from nginx – realaaa Mar 18 '10 at 7:18
  • After i installed the RPMs, is there a service to start? And must this service run alongside Apache, or should i disable the apache server. – Saif Bechan Mar 23 '10 at 5:08
