    PF Two nginx instances running; eliminate one with PF?

    I've a FreeBSD box, nginx running as a proxy, forwarding HTTP/HTTPS requests to the nginx instance in the Jail, running on within the OS. So, that practically means two nginx instances running on the server. I wonder if I could forward the 80/443 port requests DIRECTLY to the nginx in...

But when using nginx on Debian / Ubuntu etc., you will have some improvements, f.e. saving site configs into separate files in /etc/nginx/sites-available directory. Their soft links are in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled directory, and the main...

    Nginx: sendfile or aio on FreeBSD 13.1+ZFS?

    Greetings. Nginx states (Changes with nginx 1.21.5 - 28 Dec 2021): Change: now nginx always uses sendfile(SF_NODISKIO) on FreeBSD. So it seems, it uses "sendfile: on;" by the default on FreeBSD. Afaik, sendfile should be off for FreeBSD and ZFS, to avoid redundant data caching. I'm on ZFS...

    Greetings, I opened a bug 264273 because I have two panics in 8 hours after the binary update from 12.2 to 13.0 from nginx calling sendfile. Any one else with a similar problem? Somebody suggested to disable sendfile and enable aio . Is this a suggested move or not? Thank you again, B.

    Help with jail permissions

    Hello, I have a jail set up to test my nginx web server on my local machine and make changes to it before I push. However, I wanted to use a GUI editor from outside the jail to edit the HTML/CSS (which is the main reason I wanted to use a jail). I made perhaps a horrible mistake by recursively...
