Nginx, Unicorn, and Rails1:20 with Jay McGavren
In this workshop, we're going to show you how to set up a reverse proxy between your Rails app and the Internet at large. The proxy will take requests on port 80 (which is the default used by browsers), forward them to your Rails app, and then forward the Rails responses back to the browsers that requested them. We've going to use a high-performance web server called Nginx as our reverse proxy. We'll also set up Unicorn, an HTTP server that will manage connections to your actual Rails app. Unicorn is good for your site's stability and speed.
