After a year of running this domain under nginx with XCache, I’ve decided to roll things back over to Apache for the time being.
While nginx has been great when it came to system resources, I’ve never been able to get it to play nicely with Super Cache. I mean, things were caching just fine — but expired stuff hung around forever. And while I like my tweets, photos and Pinboard links from a few days ago, I’d rather show my visitors fresh content.
Besides, I’ve seriously been itching to use mod_pagespeed and PHP 5.3 on my personal site. And since neither of those things are available under the DreamHost install of nginx, my hand was forced.
But not all hope is lost! Being the huge nerd that I am, I’ll probably switch back to nginx once PHP-FPM support gets added into the DreamHost PHP 5.3 install.
