You want to run .NET websites behind Nginx and don't want to use Windows to do it. Spiffy.

Here's the virtual host configuration you'll want.

server {
        server_name profarius.com;
        root /var/www/webapp;
        index index.html index.htm index.aspx default.aspx;
 
        location = /favicon.ico {
                log_not_found off;
                access_log off;
        }
 
        location = /robots.txt {
                allow all;
                log_not_found off;
                access_log off;
        }
 
        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.aspx;
        }
 
        # Fighting with ImageCache? This little gem is amazing.
        location ~ ^/sites/.*/files/imagecache/ {
                try_files $uri $uri/ @rewrite;
        }
 
        location ~* \.(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico)$ {
                expires max;
                log_not_found off;
        }
 
        location ~ \.(aspx|asmx|ashx|asax|ascx|soap|rem|axd|cs|config|dll)$ {
            fastcgi_pass   127.0.0.1:9000;
            fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
            include        fastcgi_params;
        }
}

Note the above where you pass to 127.0.0.1:9000. This is a TCP socket that is launched as such.

fastcgi-mono-server2 /socket=tcp:9000

You could also bind it to a UNIX socket which is recommended.

fastcgi-mono-server2 /socket=unix:/tmp/fastcgi.socket
