Setup Redmine on Ubuntu with nginx webserver.

If You have already configured Nginx server on Ubuntu  with php back-end, but You need to setup Redmine bug-tracker, you need Setup another environment and one of the is “Phusion Passenger” which better to setup in current situation in Stand-Alone mode.

Config for Virtual Hosts in /etc/nginx/sites-available: 
map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade {
default upgrade;
'' close;

server {
listen 80;

# Tells Nginx to serve static assets from this directory.
root /webapps/foo/public;

location / {
# Tells Nginx to forward all requests for
# to the Passenger Standalone instance listening on port 4000.

# These are "magic" Nginx configuration options that
# should be present in order to make the reverse proxying
# work properly. Also contains some options that make WebSockets
# work properly with Passenger Standalone. Please learn more at
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;
proxy_buffering off;

I recommend create own file for example (passenger) and put it in directory
/etc/nginx/sites-available with symbolic-link
to /etc/nginx/sites-enabled by this command:

ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/passenger /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/passenger

How to lunch Phusion Passenger web server?
