Changing your site to NGINX-Only
Last Updated -
This support article is for our customers on a gen2 server. If you are not sure if your account/site(s) are on a gen2 server, please contact support.
For those on a gen2 server, you have the ability to switch your site to NGINX-only.
To do so, log into atomic and navigate to the site you'd like to change.
You'll see a new section called Hosting Options where you'll find the ability to switch a site to NGINX-only.
NOTE: If you switch your site to NGINX-only this will remove the ability to use .htaccess. For our shared customers, support will be limited if you require specific NGINX rules that you can normally do via .htacccess. Shared customers will need to use this plugin for standard 301 redirects.
If you have a VPS plan and above, you may want to read our guide for NGINX+Apache and NGINX-only modes for more in-depth information!
