Habari on nginx

Doing it habari style

Since this site is running on a vps with a limited amount of ram I felt the need of changing from Apache to something less memory consuming. Slicehost is my new host and they have an excellent section of articles including one explaining how to install Nginx however Habari wouldn’t play nice with it. Nginx doesn’t support Apaches .htaccess files so you need to add your own rewrite rules.

if (!-e $request_filename) { rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php?$1 last; }

Four short lines code solved the problem and now I have a working setup. Habari and Nginx plays very nice together.
