Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with
nginx on Ubuntu 12.04. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are
several ways to work around this. I will outline three solutions: the
first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server
that has CGI support, while the second and third solution are very
similar – both use a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.
