ssl everywhere with apache varnish nginx
« on: December 09, 2016, 08:52:31 AM »

in the past, it's possible to have configuration with nginx-varnish-apache
now it's finish, there is varnish-nginx-apache (in test version ...   :-\) I don't really understand this choice (why nginx in the middle ??? but ok, no matters)

the problem with this solution is work really good but only with clear web pages

when you put ssl there is a redirection directly for apache (port 443 -> httpd) loosing all the benefits of varnish cache and compressed files by nginx

it's a suggestion to have a possibility:

*nginx (ports 80 and 443) for compress files, encrypt with ssl, and quick send result
*varnish (port 82) to cache all web pages, and maybe put all in RAM (speed up the site answer)
*apache (port 8181) to have all use comfort for all specifics utilizations for a lot of type of websites

with this solution you have all the benefits for all tools and make a really great total fast job

all the traffic pass by the same way and have the same quick answer  :)

best regards

Yes please, this would make CWP even more AWESOME  :)

I have previously played around with the vhost files and gotten nginx reverse proxy to handle the https traffic thus it's possible. It took me days to research and I lost the config when I had to move servers. It would be nice to have this performance boost at the click of a button after all the https website frontier is already upon us.
