What Nginx Configuration Is Used? How To Customize It?

What is the Nginx config that SlickStack uses or how to customize it? Good question. We try to limit the amount of options in SlickStack to improve stability and standardization. This is because many of the settings have been tested for many years by various sysadmins and teams the best practice settings are already well known.

But to make certain changes to Nginx its still supported inside the ss-config file. You should never modify your Nginx config files directly on SlickStack (or any other system files or otherwiseactually, besides ss-config… this is how we ensure stability).

If you do decide to make changes to your ss-config settings be sure to run ss-install again and then reboot your server.
