Starting WordPress-Nginx Tutorial Series

We are starting WordPress-Nginx tutorial series to make your site fast like! I hope you will find this useful.

(cross-posted from rtCamp blog)

It has been almost 3 years that we moved our high-traffic blog Devils Workshop to Nginx – one of the fastest web server out there.

When I started with Nginx, there was very less help available. I spent most of my time on Nginx IRC channel, mailing lists and forums.

What looked like a crazy move then, seems totally worth now. We handle almost half-million hits daily for more than 20 sites hosted on our dedicated server without any slowdown or downtime. I feel proud to switch to Nginx much earlier. As an early mover, I leaned way too many things myself as there was no alternative then.

Today, as a server-administrator, I feel that I have learned enough to authoritatively write down my own findings here as a series of articles. I hope you will find this helpful.

You can find more details about this series, its content and other details here.

I will be publishing one article everyday on rtCamp’s blog. You can subscribe to rtCamp’s blog easily.

At any time, you can use our free support forum if you need some technical help. Comments will be kept open to discuss article itself.

I hope you will find this series useful. 🙂
