Nginx and plesk 8.6 on Mediatemple VPS

Hello,

I have a web service running on Mediatemple VPS with the following
configuration: Centos 5/ Plesk 8.6 /Apache 2 /Php 5.2.6 / Mysql 5.x.x/
APC / Memcached.

I want to add nginx as reverse proxy and cache. I heard that it has
problems running with Plesk since Plesk can rewrite the apache
configuration files and change its port back to 80 (the nginx port).

Did anyone install this configuration? How can I solve the issue above?
What other problems I may face? Please share your experience, what are
the pitfalls? Any tutorial I can use?

Thanks,
Niro
