  1. Tom: Please add this feature so we can do nginx in front of apache. Even cPanel has several good solutions for doing it. It's the only thing I'm waiting for to move to Interworx.

  2. Michael Dance: Nginx Proxy is coming in InterWorx 5.1 guys, so you can use Nginx in front of Apache. :D

  3. Lakshmish: It would be great if we can install Nginx as a Reverse Proxy on InterWorx as we are using in cpanel via plugin from

  4. Victor: Nagy Róbert We think to use Nginx as a caching proxy server, as it is done in ISPmanager for example:
    server {
    	charset utf-8;
    	disable_symlinks if_not_owner from=$root_path;
    	listen IP:80;
    	include /etc/nginx/vhosts-includes/*;
    	set $root_path /var/www/USER/data/www/;
    	location / {
    		root $root_path;
    		access_log .... ;
    		error_log .... notice;
    		location ~ [^/]\.ph(p\d*|tml)$ {
    			try_files /does_not_exists @fallback;
    		location ~* ^.+\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|svg|js|css|mp3|ogg|mpe?g|avi|zip|gz|bz2?|rar|swf)$ {
    		location / {
    			try_files /does_not_exists @fallback;
    	location @fallback {
    		error_log off;
    		proxy_redirect /;
    		proxy_set_header Host $host;
    		proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    		proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    		proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Secret eKhtQwUGdwgTEYfN;
    		access_log off ;

  5. Victor: Possibly to make a linking of nginx+apache where nginx will be in a role a server cache for return static files (jpg, css, js, zip, etc better. )

    • InterWorx: Curious idea.

      • Jason C: Interworx is on 5.1 now, and nginx still is not being used anywhere. Please let us enable/use nginx as a static content - either serving filetypes (.txt, .css, etc) or by serving all content on a subdomain ( that points to a subdirectory inside our web root.

        • David: I agree

  6. Nagy Róbert: With nginx, You need to support some extra settings in siteworx because of nginx does not support .htaccess files.

    • nadav buchman: not exactly .htaccess is not supported only when nginx is the web server however when it only does reverse proxy, eventually the apache server the pages and the php and only the static content will go out through nginx therefore .htaccess will act normally the only difference is that you can't use it to allow access from specific ips, since the request is coming from the server request (i.e deny from all, allow from ip...)
