    Hey guys,

    We recently lunched our website and we developed our own “blog system”, however our demands for the system increases as we go. We are looking into migrating into wordpress for the blog part (https://ollygames.com/blog) So my questions is:

    1. Will there be any limitations for WordPress or its plugins to run on a server powered by Nginx?

    2. Will it be possible and or a good idea to seperate our main website (https://ollygames.com) from the blog part, so only that runs on WordPress?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi @sprinto!

    You shouldn’t encounter any problems running WordPress with ngnix – both WordPress.org and WordPress.com are configured that way, many large sites choose to use nginx.

    Here’s some documentation for getting it up and running:

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx

    It’s certainly possible to separate your main site from your blog, the primary benefit is performance – separate servers can be tweaked for running your site vs. running WordPress. I’d recommend configuring a reverse proxy in Nginx for the /blog path, which you can forward to your WordPress server over the internal network.

    @gary – Awesome!

    Like the idea with reversing proxy for the blog part. think we will go with that solution,

    Thanks a bunch!
