Documentation - unsupported web servers

Let’s talk about documentation for web servers.

Until now, Textpattern has officially been supported on Apache httpd server, although there is evidence to say it runs smoothly on other non-Apache server such as Microsoft IIS, NGINX, Hiawatha, Caddy etc.

From Textpattern 4.7.0, there is built-in support for NGINX web server, as well as Apache httpd. The other web servers will likely continue to work OK, too.

I have taken the task of adding instructions for NGINX web server to Textpattern documentation, and I am exploring ways of having other web servers included in this documentation, but with a ‘not officially supported’ note.

My question is: what web server(s) would you like to see documentation for in Textpattern? Please remember official support extends to Apache httpd and NGINX, but if there is a documented way to run Textpattern on other servers then this can be a great way to extend the audience of our CMS.

For my own curiosity, I would love to see if or how Textpattern runs on Caddy, for example.

If you are particularly skilled at a non-supported web server and are able to provide useful information to add to the documentation, this will be hugely helpful.

Thank you!

I am thinking it probably would based on reading over this: Lightning Fast WordPress: Caddy+Varnish+PHP-FPM.

Where should reside this instruction? My Englišh is weak, although not so much to document.
