Hi guys,

I ran mybb on an old website some time ago, however we were using apache. Now I have a new server which is on nginx, should that cause any problems or anything special I have to take care of?  Confused

Absolute no problem on nginx, apache...

The only thing to care about is plugins, some plugins support apache server and show undesired working on nginx, one example is google seo plugin.

Nginx is a server like Apache, not many plugin author will mention server compatibility except in very rare scenarios. But you are good to use nginx because almost 98 % plugins will support this server Smile Good luck..

The only issue you might have is that nginx doesn't support .htaccess files, so you'll have to add rewrite rules to your ghost configuration if you wish to use "pretty" URLs.
