    Currently, the nginx config files are a bit messy, IMHO. Besides the main nginx conf files for each domain, we have
    • /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d
      • domain.com.conf
      • domain.ssl.com.conf
    • /usr/local/nginx/conf
      • wpcacheenabler_domain.com.conf
      • wpsecure_domain.com.conf
      • wpsupercache_domain.com.conf
      • rediscache_domain.com.conf
    I was thinking it would be quite convenient to store the nginx .conf files for each domain together with the other stuff...

    In /home/nginx/domains/domain.com we already have
    • /public
    • /private
    • /log
    • /backup
    Why not just place the doman related config files in there? Something like this...
    • /conf
      • domain.com.conf
      • domain.ssl.com.conf
      • /inc
        • wpcacheenabler_domain.com.conf
        • wpsecure_domain.com.conf
        • wpsupercache_domain.com.conf
        • rediscache_domain.com.conf
    What do you think?

    The way it's done now is outlined at Nginx - Developer Overview: How Nginx is installed on Centmin Mod LEMP stack | Centmin Mod Community as nginx /usr/local/nginx/conf is auto backed up every time you upgrade or download nginx via centmin.sh.

    It also makes automation of the routines easier to do. Also folks are more likely to edit or remove files within their own /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/ directories. Another reason is if you provide Pure-FTPD virtual ftp access to users other than yourself, then you open up access to server level configuration files to other users who can edit or at least read your server configuration files.

    What do you think about organizing better in /usr/local/nginx/conf ?
    Perhaps subfolders for every domain and keeping the files together there?

    Also, maybe adding a symlink to that folder in /home/nginx/domains/domain.com/conf
    Coudn't we use the symlink to prevent ftp access?

    In all honesty keeping configure files out of /home/nginx/domains/domain.com will always be the way Centmin Mod will be developed. You can always manually symlink the config files yourself if you want convenient, or setup alias cmds or cmd shortcuts yourself (see FAQ item 16). The default ones you can see at centminmod/shortcuts_install.inc at 123.08stable · centminmod/centminmod · GitHub

    i.e. to edit /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf just type nginxconf
    Code:
    echo "nano -w /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf" >/usr/bin/nginxconf ; chmod 700 /usr/bin/nginxconf
    Code:
    cat /usr/bin/nginxconf
    nano -w /usr/local/nginx/conf/nginx.conf
    possibly for just the wordpress centmin.sh menu option 22 specific files like
    • wpcacheenabler_domain.com.conf
    • wpsecure_domain.com.conf
    • wpsupercache_domain.com.conf
    • rediscache_domain.com.conf
    but the other include files are global includes for each vhost so need to be to in /usr/local/nginx/conf

    FYI 123.09beta01 has updated inc/wpsetup.inc for centmin.sh menu option 22 update inc/wpsetup.inc for 123.09beta01 · centminmod/centminmod@402f43d · GitHub

    move centmin.sh menu option 22 wordpress generated include files from /usr/local/nginx/conf to their own specific directories at /usr/local/nginx/conf/wpincludes/$vhostname directory

    example for centmin.sh menu option 22 wordpress install for newdomain2.com
    Code:
    ls -lah /usr/local/nginx/conf/wpincludes/newdomain2.com/
    total 24K
    drwxr-x--- 2 root root 4.0K Jan 27 00:06 .
    drwxr-x--- 3 root root 4.0K Jan 27 00:06 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1009 Jan 27 00:06 rediscache_newdomain2.com.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.2K Jan 27 00:06 wpcacheenabler_newdomain2.com.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.1K Jan 27 00:06 wpsecure_newdomain2.com.conf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  489 Jan 27 00:06 wpsupercache_newdomain2.com.conf
