It seems like all the cool kids are using Nginx now.
@Are0h it's nowadays the Industry Standard in both "stick it front of your app server" & "cache small files" - nowadays, there are alternatives - IIS & Apache still exist and tbh they aren't bad, but there's new options too. HAProxy focuses purely on reverse proxying performance&reliability, caddy focuses on ease of deployment, and OpenBSD's relayd/httpd focus on security&simplicity. Of them I can recommend HAProxy if that's what you need; no experience with httpd (I should tho!) or caddy.
@Are0h nginx has less moving parts than apache, which is good for security to.
Caddy from what I've read is set up so config is automatic as possible - Let's Encrypt is just one line IIRC. A bit too magical for me though.
HAProxy I use, mostly because its reverse proxy capabilities are pretty robust - (ab)using SNI to dispatch is very handy, and not picky! They claim there's never been a crash in prod.
OpenBSD's relayd/httpd I assume has extremely high quality code & docs - will give a shot!
@calvin Yeah, from what I see Nginix is pretty lean.
LOL, I hear you. Once you get used a certain amount of effort, things that make that process easier feel weird.
Hm, that's a pretty strong endorsement. Mostly because I hate dealing with reverse proxy issues.
Yeah, let me know what you think about that.
