We walk through a bash script for setting up a WordPress deployment on Ubuntu that's managed by NGINX Unit and uses NGINX for web serving. The resulting WordPress deployment is scriptable, supports Let’s Encrypt, and has production-ready settings.
Application security is hard, but there are some best practices to help you achieve it: automate as much as possible, build security as a guardrail instead of a gate, select solutions that provide easily understood insights, and make security adaptable, scalable, and reliable.
We compare the performance of the community, NGINX Open Source, and NGINX Plus Ingress Controllers in a dynamic Kubernetes cloud environment. As the number of Pod replicas scales up and down, only the NGINX Plus Ingress Controller doesn't incur high latencies.
We provide guidance on where to deploy application services in a Kubernetes environment, using WAF as an example. Depending on your needs, it can make sense to deploy your WAF at the "front door" of the environment, on the Ingress Controller, per-service, or per-Pod.
We announce eight solutions that unleash developer speed without sacrificing the control infrastructure teams require. Get the details on NGINX Controller, App Protect, Ingress Controller, Service Mesh, and Analytics Cloud Service; F5 DNS Cloud Services; and Red Hat integrations.
We explore three factors that hamper the speed of software development and delivery: dev teams are battling fatigue, tools aren't automated, and infrastructure is too complex. Find out how NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, NGINX App Protect, and NGINX Controller can help.
On 14 September 2020 we released an update to the NGINX Plus ModSecurity module (for NGINX Plus R20, R21, and R22) in response to CVE-2020-15598. We encourage NGINX Plus subscribers to upgrade to the patched module.
We explain why duplicating application services paradoxically can improve overall efficiency: because NetOps and DevOps teams have different mandates, it makes sense for them to select and manage the tools that best suit their specific needs.
Internal APIs are the real powerhouse of the API economy. We review some of their key benefits (efficiency and cost savings among them) and outline best practices, which include using an API management solution and high-performance API gateways, and decoupling the control and data planes.
