Getting Started with NGINX

Getting Started with NGINX

Getting Started with NGINX is very simple, but what is NGINX? I needed to learn this new technology quickly because at my 9 to 5 job we have two web servers hosted on a Ubuntu server using NGINX. What every happened to Apache. Oh well, I guess I have to learn something new.

What is NGINX?

To keep it short and simple. NGINX is a web server which can also be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy and HTTP cache. 

Getting Started

The first thing to do was to create a lab, so I could start testing out NGINX and get myself familiar with how it runs and work behind the scenes. That means I needed to create a Ubuntu server and install NGINX and get a dummy website up and running.

Once NGINX was installed within Ubuntu and I checked the status of NGINX. I was ready to start working with NGINX.
