CentOS.org still uses nginx 1.6.x?

Postby baijianpeng » 2016/10/04 10:31:26

Yesterday I met a temporary down of CentOS.org server, I saw following message on my browser:

504 Gateway Time-out

nginx/1.6.3


Are you still using NingX 1.6.3? That is incredible!

I noticed that centos.org has enabed HTTPS, why not use Nginx 1.9.5+ to obtain http/2 hence you will get improved https speed?

You misunderstood me. I mean "www.centos.org' website server, not my own server.

This official website/forum is on a server than runs NginX 1.6.3.
