Nginx is a high-performance and open-source web server that is widely used in the web community. It can now be configured with ColdFusion 2016. With this post we are making available the prerelease build of the web-server connector for testing purposes.
The prerelese build is in the form of an Linux 64-bit installer that packages the following 2 components:
- The Nginx web server installer. This installer is a variant of the standard Nginx installer that packages the AJP modules that enbable the communication between the webserver and ColdFusion.
- WSconfig.jar. This is a modified version of the library present in ColdFusion's <cf_root>/cfusion/lib directory, that is required by the WSConfig tool when configuring a web server connector.
For detailed instructions on installing the webserver and configuring the connector, refer this document.
We will look forward to your suggestions and feedback.
