Week 14 ( 2nd Sems) – Configuring Nginx

Since nginx ( pronounced ‘engine-x’ ) was the second most common web server/load balancer in use, we thought it would be a good idea to try some of the previous techniques ( check IPid sequences, TCP timestamps, etc) on servers running nginx to see if the results hold. I spent this week attempting to configure a couple instances in EC2 running nginx. The set-up is slightly more complicated than a basic Apache server and so additional troubleshooting was needed.
