Configure Virtualmin with Nginx as reverse proxy for Ubantu Server

Hello Team,

I am very new to Virtualmin and VPS environment and I am still learning.

Currently I am working on configuring virtualmin for my new dynamic website.

I read lot of article about Nginx and its benefits for dynamic sites.

I would like to integrate these features to my server. I want to use nginx as a reverse proxy to reduce load on server.

currently i am using Ubantu 16.04 LTS with Virtualmin GPL. Its a fresh setup and virtual hosts not created yet.

Request detailed steps or screenshots of the steps will help

Many thanks

well that document talks about replacing apache with nginx server.

I have a requirement of using both server, nginx as reverse proxy for apache for static contents.

I found one link from other post, these steps are direct edit of apache and install of Nginx. I am not sure how to configure it in virtualmin without hampering other functionalities or programs.

Let me know if any one already tested, I am curious to know more about it..

I think it would be very great option to get a native option / support for Nginx as reverse proxy for Apache in Virtualmin.

With this you can have the advantages (for a big part) of Nginx without loosing htaccess support or doing complex configurations. Yes, I think this would be really nice if the Virtualmin authors could add this too. Or maybe some other developer. I am also trying to find a way to realise this.
