NGINX is useful beyond simply serving static content, and works wonderfully as a reverse proxy in front of other backend services. In this activity, the student will set up NGINX as a reverse proxy for a simple web application and a WordPress blog. Being able to configure NGINX for use with a variety of application types allows you to use the right tool for the job (WordPress for blogging in this case) and provide a lot of business value.
