Hi,

I've came across this plugin - /http://cpnginx.com/ that suppose to do all the job for you.

I've contacted their sails with some presale questions, they responded very quick and even suggested free installation service.

Before I give it a try - Anyone tried it before, and want to share his experience?

I've used the free installer available in another thread here, and uninstalled it to try out this plugin. The plugin installed and worked fine (I used a trial license) but when I uninstalled it, and attempted to reinstall the free installer again, the install of the free one failed. Repeatedly.

I couldn't see any difference in performance/usability, except that there is no need to SSH into your sever to make changes to the nginx conf, as the plugin allows you to do so in WHM.

But I'm concerned that I'm pretty much stuck with their plugin if I want to continue usingnginx, because I can't revert to the free installer now. :(

@Texo

Which free version where you using? Was it running properly on last CPanel version? No errors? And how about adding, deleting, subdomans, etc..?

Thanks.

I use this one on 7 servers:

/http://icodex.org/public_nocache.tar

and it works perfectly. No problems with adding/removing subdomains, addon domains etc.

Edit: forgot to say that to install on 11.26 you need to edit the script. Search for "11.25" in the nginxinstaller script, and change it to "11.26"

I did install it this way

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://icodex.org/public_nocache.tar
tar xf public.tar
cd publicnginx
./nginxinstaller install
/etc/init.d/httpd restart

But it does not works.. my site is so slow and on CPanel says nginx is off. Any idea?

the cpanel nginx plugin , cpnginx.com , will release a new version soon , which will allow you to server your static files directly from nginx than going to apache , Also see a remove from wht on cpremote script - Web Hosting Talk
This guy reduced his server load from 20 to 2 to 4

1. anyone using cpnginx.com plugin on production server?
2. does all subdomains, addon domains and parked domains work well?
3. does all bandwidth counting works normally?
4. does all .htaccess stuff works normally (mod_rewrites, authentifications...)?
5. are updates to new versions done automatically (easily)?

I have tried to install , but always encounter some problems, really depressed!
If you are having an issue, please post on the thread for the plugin about the error you are receiving or what is happening. Right now, what you've said is not specific enough to know how to help you to troubleshoot the issue. Normally, the plugin provider will help with getting the plugin to work if you post in the thread on it. I'm also not certain which plugin you tried to install, since approximately 3 different ones were mentioned in this thread.

Yup, tried and reviewed.
Don't bother with this company at all, go with the free version.
Paid product (demo):
Couldn't install properly. When asked, dev said it was the system itself. Turns out it was bailing on an error in the code itself.
When developer was made aware of this, developer said that it wouldn't install because of the system, then wanted "root access" to fix something that was wrong (in their own code). Of course, I'm not stupid enough to give someone that can't fix code problems on their own system root access, that just aint happening.

Free product (no demo needed):
  1. Downloaded
  2. Installed
  3. Worked

The long and short of it is that these "developers" don't have a clue what they're doing. Taking the typical (it's a system problem) line shows that they just couldn't code their way out of a paper bag if their lives depended on it. Go with the free version, you'll be happy

Alex, yes, it does work. The install process is pretty well automated, just two steps. Uninstalling works the same way. I'd go with the dev release (v. 2.2), it's very stable. I tried it as a reverse proxy for Apache. Pages server noticeably faster, and the amount of processor power being utilized by Apache dropped from 4-5% to around 0.25%. Server load dropped a bunch, too. Nginxcp automatically reconfigures Apache to listen on port 8081. Only thing you need to remember is to uninstall Nginx before rebuilding with Easyapache, otherwise it fails with errors.

FYI, in terms of what version to get, I'd go with Nginx Admin (nginxcp.com). I've never used cpnginx, but Nginx Admin has the advantage of being free and having a pretty active user/support base.

I totally agree with the disappoint related to the plugin mentioned at the beginning, I have found these other nginx plugin:

/http://nginxcp.com/

I don't want to put a fly into the ointment, but does Apache 2.4 lessen the value of Nginx?

Peace,
Gene
