We want to serve different applications on the same domain, based on path. For example
mydomain.com Serves a WordPress website and
mydomain.com/app serves a google app engine application. My natural choice was to point to
mydomain.com at a cluster of NGINX machines, which are configured to proxy based on path.
My question is, is this a solid solution? I always see that NGINX regarded as a proxy for static content, where as I want to proxy any kind of content. IS there something I'm missing? What should I be looking out for when NGINX as a dynamic content proxy?
PS: Thanks to all who said that I can serve the blog from a sub-domain. I'm aware of that solution, but it's not relevant to my problem. As I have a specific requirement to serve everything from the same domain.
