I would like to know has anyone been successful to run django on nginx? I have several django apps running on Apache2 on suse 11.4 and i would like to migrate them to nginx. Are there any modules that django requires in order to successfully run on nginx.

There are a lot of options. Just Googling Django nginx will give you a good idea how people handle their Django sites. The easiest is to use Django's built-in FastCGI server. The most popular seems to be uWSGI (I constantly see people raving on about it). I use FastCGI and it works just fine for me.

But this should give you an idea of where to start.

The two links near the top of this section should help explain more.
