I put up a gentoo box this weekend, and I installed nginx 0.7.7 on it.
I put a php backend on via fastcgi. No matter what I did,
Firefox+HTTPS didn’t work properly. I used Firefox 3.0.x from Mac and
Linux. Webkit/Safari worked almost 100%. (I had one problem, which
may have been an aberration.) I tried many things, and always I
could get one or two pages to successfully to load, then the next time
I clicked the page would never complete loading.
roundcube - 0.1 and 0.2alpha
nginx 0.7.7, 0.7.8
Godaddy signed chained certificates
No startup errors were found in either PHP or Nginx.
If I killed php-cgi, and restarted, there would be no effect.
If I restarted NGINX, then the browser load would (of course) stop.
Often times the page would be incomplete.
I enabled http:// for the site, and it worked fine. I tried a variety
of options for 0.7, and was unable to succeed.
I tried a variety of settings, but ultimately nothing worked until I
downgraded to nginx-0.6.32. Now, with the exact same config
everything is working.
