The second of these posts may as well detail the efforts involved in migrating from an old old apache webserver and moving on over to nginx, such that I too may claim experience and faster serving of my currently very limited content. In doing so I migrated my python scripts which were earlier running on mod_wsgi for apache onto the dedicated uwsgi servers, I'm still getting to terms with how this all works, but I am hopeful that there won't be many issues.
One of the projects that I am now writing is a python event service passing messages through an event queue like Rabbit and out via Server Sent Events to web pages I am hosting. This is one of the steps that I am performing in modernizing the domain and exposing as many services through port 80/443 as I possibly can.
HTTPS will follow soon, maybe the site will be all HTTPS too, we will see.
