    I don't have nginx installed yet. I'm asking about it first before I install ISPConfig 3.


    ^^^Those forums all suck btw

    This is not recommended for XenForo, go take a look at the suggested nginx vhost config in the XenForo help section.

    No. You choose at time of install what webserver you want to use when installing ISPConfig for the first time, it's recommended that you disable whatever webserver you don't intend to use before installation. Ive installed ISPConfig a few times now, I'm still learning but if you wanted to switch from apache to nginx you would just uninstall ISPConfig disable Apache & enable nginx then run through the install again.

    As long as you're. It hosting any sites yet I can't see any issues.

    Also you're going to have to modify the master vhost template supplied in ISPConfig as out of the box it won't work correctly.

    I haven't installed ISPConfig3 yet. I stopped right before

    21 Install ISPConfig 3

    Now that I know, I will install nginx. At which step in the guide you used should I start since I've already done everything onward to 20 but not step 21 in the guide I'm using.

    I wasn't trying to make a recommendation for XF config, I was just pointing out that that Linode tutorial had a gaping security flaw in the configuration.

    From what you pointed out: http://xenforo.com/help/friendly-urls/
    Doing try_files $uri /index.php within the PHP location block is a more elegant fix than what I suggested.

    Oh wow really thanks. I didn't use anything in that linode tutorial yet.

    Fair enough the only reason I pointed it out was because it took months to get that figured out and included in the help pages :)

    You should be good to pick up from step 14, let me know if you run into any issues.

    Thanks! Since this is some dangerous ish I'm gonna stick with shared hosting and only use this unmanaged vps as my pet project. I'll put a site I never use on it. Dumb question but there isn't a way to copy-n-paste text in command line is there?

    Copy / Paste is straight forward.

    To copy text, just highlight it with your mouse, and then to paste, default action is right click

    Thank you very much sir! On some sites, their ones look like ls and visa versa.

    ISPConfig is OK. But it can be a little buggy.

    If you really want a control panel.... May I suggest Direct Admin (directadmin.com). A lot like cPanel, but uses less resources and is cheaper. You can lease or buy (lifetime fee is $299).

    Very easy to install and setup with friendly & quick support.

    Install the minimal OS of your choice and install Direct Admin. It will configure it's self (may ask a few questions, but everything is straight forward).

    Had to use this guide to install php5-fpm

    When I switched to nginx I kept getting # = this line is depreciated error. Replacement is ;

    Had trouble installing fcgiwrap. Had to get it from here:

    pure-ftp kept giving me errors. I tried several different guides to install it but to no avail.

    I asked customer support and they showed me a cent0s guide for proftpd.

    So I'm switching back to centos again. This time I'm going to try eva from vb4's centmin mod guide.

    FAQ http://centminmod.com/faq.html
    Change Log http://centminmod.com/changelog.html

    Installing this: http://vbtechsupport.com/1669/

    Centmin Mod Nginx Auto Installer script has been updated to v1.2.2-eva2000.08. The latest version auto installs Nginx v1.1.11, PHP 5.3.8 PHP-FPM, MariaDB 5.2.10 with optional components to be automatically installed like, Xcache v1.3.2, APC v3.1.9, Memcached 1.4.10, Memcache v3.0.5, CSF Firewall, Python v2.7.2, Siege benchmark, and NSD a low memory foot print BIND replacement. All this is done via an interactive menu.

    ^^Gonna use it with both memcached and APC turned on according to this article http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1935240/can-i-use-apc-and-memcached-on-the-same-server
