I am attempting to properly set up Play Framework with Nginx as the front-end HTTP server on Amazon AMI.
I am a bit confused by the official documentation set out by Play. Are they suggesting that you run
and then configure Nginx to reroute to port 9000 in order to properly serve up my app? I feel like having a dedicated user just to run the start command is a waste, isn’t there a better way to do this?
I would really appreciate some basic strategies for best practices for a production Play Framework web app.
