h1. System requirements

h1. Deployment with nginx

Catalyst versions prior to 5.8 are limited in that your application can only reside at / (more details and a workaround at "Catalyst and nginx":http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/wiki/adventcalendararticles/2008/02-catalyst_and_nginx). An alternative is to create a subdomain for your wiki. Here is an example nginx configuration for "my wiki":http://wiki.dandascalescu.com:

bc.. server { server_name ~wiki.dandascalescu.(com|org|net) wiki.dascalescudan.com;

access_log logs/wiki.access;
error_log logs/wiki.error error;location / {
    include fastcgi_params;
}location /.static/ {
    alias /home/dan/mojomojo.prod/root/static/;


p. The @mojomojo@ server is, basically, run as an external FastCGI server:

bc. cd /home/dan/mojomojo.prod script/mojomojo_fastcgi.pl -listen -nproc 5 -keeperr 2>>log/error.log &

For a robust configuration, use the start/stop @init@ script from the "lighttpd deployment":http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/wiki/gettingstarted/howtos/deploy/lighttpd_fastcgi page.
