Reference: PHP5 FastCGI config for nginx on Ubuntu and clean URLs

I was trying to figure out how to get a wordpress blog up and running on my slicehost slice real fast but I don’t know anything about nginx or FastCGI.

Serving PHP5 with Nginx on Ubuntu 7.10 turned out to be a good step-by-step that provided all the info I needed. Thanks Mr. Blogger!

For SEO purposes I also needed some clean URLs. nginx does not do .htaccess files so you have to setup the nginx config yourself. nginx rewrite rules for wordpress worked for me. Thank you too Mr. Blogger!

I added this to my location block {}.

if (-e $request_filename) {
rewrite ^/blog/(.+)$ /blog/index.php?q=$1 last;

I recently revived my computer in a box so that I could create a digital media server to use with my PS3. Fuppes wouldn’t install properly until I found the above article.

The problem was that some key components for Fuppes to install were missing so I had to get the files from a hardy repository instead of intrepid.
