Mod_cfml now has full nginx support!

mod_cfml logoA while back, I needed to set up a new Ubuntu server for Lucee web hosting. Luckily, I came across a great install script, which not only installed Tomcat and Lucee, but also set up nginx and mod_cfml.
Having developed the 1.1 version of mod_cfml, I noticed not all options for mod_cfml were yet available in the scripts. So I added path_info support, and now also added support for the X-webserver-context header.

The X-webserver-context header makes sure Tomcat / mod_cfml only creates one Host for each server-block/VirtualHost/web-context. Without this header, if you have multiple hostnames pointing to the same web context (eg server_name *.mysite.com;), Tomcat would create a new Host for each new hostname, which can take up quite some resources.

These additions have now been added into the github repository, and have become the basis for the new mod_cfml installation steps for nginx.

Mod_cfml now supports Apache httpd, IIS, and nginx, on all operating systems. I think we have come a long way now. If you're still missing something, let us know at modcfml.org.
