Back to Nginx

After much head scratching, I just realized after re-reading the specs of mod_proxy in 1.3 spec that the mod_proxy version for apache 1.3.x doesn’t support the style

ProxyPass /images !

Looking closely at the spec

Syntax: ProxyPass path url Default: None

vs this one (in the 2.0 spec)

Description: Maps remote servers into the local server URL-space Syntax: ProxyPass [path] !|url

pretty much shows the unobvious difference that there is an exclamation point for v2.0 onwards.

With all that, I have opted to return to nginx (at least for now) with the new setup. Right now everything seems blazingly fast (and nginx has a new release, surprise surprise) so at long last, mongrel is no longer serving static files..
