This week I chose to take a bit of a deeper dive in an area I really knew nothing about. I have used Apache web servers in the past but I never heard of Nginx (Engine-X) until I arrived at UIT.

From Wikipedia: “Nginx (pronounced “engine-x”) is an open source reverse proxy server for HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols, as well as a load balancer, HTTP cache, and a web server (origin server). “

The reason I chose this topic was that most of the class hit a road block with our Blog project last week. There was one line of code in our config.js file that many of us overlooked and it was giving us some navigation errors because we weren’t pointing to our custom URLs.

This is when I learned about Nginx and what is actually was. This allowed me to change the config.js and fix the broken link in my site. Below is the brief overview presentation that I presented on Friday, September 26th, 2014.

For more information I have included some resources:
