Here is a good tutorial show you about FCGI, wildcard VHOSTS, NGINX:

So, the rant server is slowly getting moved over to my new Xen/Enomalism based, s00per chr00ted nginx/fastcgi installation. Everything is going rather well. Safe mode didn’t break anything (so far), and smf forum was a breeze to set up again.

One neat thing I started working on was wildcard DNS based subdomains. Rant has a LOAD of different domains, all living in subdomains of the main vhost. The old method was a bunch of different vhost definitions, but since I didn’t feel like re-entering them in the new nginx method, I figured I would come up with a better way.
