    Hi, i am new here, and discovered this website on xenforo.com

    I am running my websites on a vps (wiredtree) but would like to switch to DigitalOcean.
    I have several wordpress sites and a xenforo forum website. I use .htaccess a lot and i am not sure nginx is actually good for me but its performance is what i am looking for.

    welcome @Umit to Centmin Mod Community. Change from apache .htaccess to nginx rewrites is a big step. Best to setup test VPS server and test site and fiddle about and learn until comfortable for live moves :)

    You might want to try the 123.09beta01 build as it will be next stable release and well has alot of improvements if you check 2nd post change log at Beta Branch - Centmin Mod .09 beta branch Testing

    Threads you might want to participate in ;)

    Thank you for your answer Eva,

    i think firstly i should simplify some of my websites (one of them is using 2 different wordpress). I have few basic php websites, and 2-3 wordpress and 1 xenforo websites.

    Can i convert all of my .htaccess to nginex format? I have basic 301 redirects and wordpress and xenforo htaccess files.

    I will save %60 percent every month and will have faster vps, super tempting.

    that's why you should set up test vps with centmin mod and test migrate sites and figure out nginx rewrites in private while your live sites are still on existing server

    once you figure the .htaccess to nginx converted rewrites, then you can think about live migrations
