Trying to get LC server running on NGNIX and having problems executing the <?!c code in my html - any special server settings required?

How did you configure NginX to run CGI?

I've only managed to run livecode-server in FCGI method (linux), which is pretty similar to setting up nginx to run shell script.
Means the embedded style "<?lc" will not works, going back to the old CGI world.

If apache2 is still available, you may setup nginx to proxy over.
