Sponsored Links
Install apache2 and nginx services.

In this setup we configured apache to run on port 81 and nginx on port 80

nginx configuration file is given below :

root@host ~ # vi /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
user www-data;

worker_processes  1;
error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log;
pid        /var/run/nginx.pid;
events {
    worker_connections  1024;
    # multi_accept on;
http {
    include       /etc/nginx/mime.types;
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log;
    sendfile        on;
    #tcp_nopush     on;
    #keepalive_timeout  0;
    keepalive_timeout  65;
    tcp_nodelay        on;
    gzip  on;
    gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.(?!.*SV1)";
    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
    include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;
server {
        listen ip_address:80;
        server_name domain.com www.domain.com;
        location / {
        proxy_pass http://ip_address:81/;
        proxy_redirect http://ip_address:81/ /;
