Switching out the actual thing

I think I have reached a point where this website is complete enough to replace the old one on the standard port :80. I have taken down the old one, in fact I have uninstalled apache2 altogether, and installed nginx instead, which now proxies everything from darkwiiplayer.com to 127.0.0.1:8080, allowing me to potentially add more virtual servers in the future using totally different server technology (darkhttpd ftw).

The only real problem I had was a cryptic error that ended up being about the length of the domain name. All I had to do to fix is was add server_names_hash_bucket_size 64; to the nginx.conf file and everything worked just fine after that.


Time will tell if I need to make further adjustments, but so far it seems like everything is working well. I might want to implement https soon though, and move the login information to some place other than the source code of the website.
