Switching from Apache to nginx, before or after import?

    I wonder what would be the easiest thing to do, I want to change from Apache to nginx, would it be better to do that first, or do the import from vB to XF first?

    I'm using vB 3.8.7 & vBSEO btw. So I will also need to redirect links after import.

    If you do an import and a server change then potentially you may have to troubleshoot two different things.

    Unless you're certain you're not going to encounter problems, I would limit the changes to as few as possible in each step.
    So do the server change first then the import.

    Well it's more about the order, because I'm not going to do it at the same time in any case. I believe I've read the redirection of vbseo URLs to XF URLs is kinda tricky with nginx? Is there some tutorial or help page you know of? Thanks.

    No harder than Apache

    Ok thanks. So do you think it's best to do the switch to nginx first, and then do the XF import/redirections? @Brogan, ok.
