    Question Nginx files upload, can I do it without upload module?

    I want to try Nginx (now using lighttpd) but look like Nginx is not easy to install/config like lighttpd...

    Because I have website where users uploading files with web forms I need files upload option on web server, in lighttpd I don`t need to use some other module for files upload but look like in Nginx I need some upload module to do that and also I must configure many variables in that upload module, is this true? Can I upload files without this upload module? Can it be simple like on lighttpd?

    You can use the upload module but you don't "need" to use it.
    Take a look here,

    as you can see it improves things but you can still upload with php like usual.

    If you use nginx just as normal webserver (with php etc, not as reverse proxy) you do not need to use the module - it will work straight away, like on any other webserver.

    Be aware that nginx uses its own (much more powerful) rewrite system as other webservers - so you need to recreate your rewrite rules (if you have any).
    Pretty much anything else is easy to config.
