# YOUR TENT SERVER IS RUNNING, YOU CAN SET UP ADMIN BY VISITING http://your_vps:3000/admin
# Go there, change the entity name to not have the :3000, and also
# add a second Server without the :3000 (then delete the :3000 one after
# you have added the without-:3000 one)
Nginx
=====
# Install Nginx using
sudo apt-get install nginx
# Add to the file /etc/nginx/defaults (or create another file in that directory)
server {
listen 80;
server_name coolname.yourserver.com; # <-- replace
location / {
proxy_pass http://0.0.0.0:3000;
include /etc/nginx/tentproxyconf.conf;
}
}
# Add more server lines as necessary for other tent entities/accounts
# Create a file /etc/nginx/tentproxyconf.conf:
proxy_redirect off;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
client_max_body_size 10m;
client_body_buffer_size 128k;
proxy_connect_timeout 90;
proxy_send_timeout 90;
proxy_read_timeout 90;
proxy_buffers 32 4k;
# Then run
sudo invoke-rc.d nginx reload
# you can also use sudo invoke-rc.d nginx stop / start

Thanks! This helped. the ruby installation didn't really work, dunno why (I'm on Natty). So I installed it via rvm. And had to replate aptitude by apt-get because it'S not installed by default (anyway, on my VPS provider).

Thanks!
