I had been using Blogger (Blogspot) for several years, but even with the latest improvements Blogger just doesn’t cut it. I have finally given up and moving on to WordPress. At this point why not host my own install. I decided to get an install going with Nginx, PHP-FPM and WordPress. Here’s a how-to on getting you own up and running as well.
Getting Nginx+Django+uWSGI to work together via repositories is fairly easy. The same goes for getting this setup working from source.. You just have to have good instructions. Here’s a very simple and quick install guide.
Install packages required to build and install from source. Also, Nginx is installed to take care of some of the prerequisites and to install configuration files.
