    I see 3 different types of nginx and it confuses the s**t out of me knowing who is who and what is what...

    whats the difference ?

    Currently I'm on the paid one which is 5USD a month but when I see some of the configs on here I don't actually see the files and such :rolleyes:

    Only come to me this yesterday and it was coming to me that I maybe thick :D

    But noo I was right.. Lots of versions so I need your opinions on what I should do..

    Ta Ta :p

    What's the difference? From someone who's tried both, here's the difference between the two:

    Paid:
    This script at last test (a couple months back) was poorly done, had major issues with wildcard subdomains, and the staff behind it had all kinds of attitude when (not) trying to provide help. Typical of most developers, they insisted it was a 'server problem', when in fact it was their script causing problems, and refused to listen to anything different.

    Free:
    As soon as I gave up on the attitude of the paid version's staff, I noticed the 'free' version. Downloaded, installed, setup, and it works oh so perfectly. Updates are regular, and it just works oob (even more proof that the paid script has issues).

    Other than the above listed stuff, you're not going to see much difference in the two. The interfaces are pretty much similar. Which to use? You're not going to get ANY more support with the paid version, you owe it to yourself to try to get this one working first. It's a pretty easy task, and you'll love it.

    There's a few tweaks that need to be made for things like major upload sites, but overalll, it's not that hard to follow.

    What we can say is just go with the cpnginx.com plugin latest version 5.0 and test it your self. If you don't have a very highly / badly customized cpanel , it will just works fine. We have proof to show a lot of people came back to cpnginx.com after getting issues with free plugin. You can check on webhosting talk threads to see a lot of people recommend it . And you only see one complaint from the same person . PM me for more details.
