How to install and config iRedMail on droplet running several django projects?

You guys at Digital ocean are so awesome and good at writing tutorials so I hope you can help me out here.

I got a Debian droplet up and running with several django projects using gunicorn and nginx. I would like to use iRedMail to host the different projects (and domains) email, installing iRedMail on the subdomain mail.mydomain.com. To achieve this I have tried to combine two of your excellent tutorials:

How To Install iRedMail On Ubuntu 12.04 x64 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-iredmail-on-ubuntu-12-04-x64

and

How To Configure Nginx as a Front End Proxy for Apache https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-configure-nginx-as-a-front-end-proxy-for-apache

Am I on the right track? Could it be done this way or how should I go about it? Also could you make a tutorial that covers this problem? that would really amazing!

Okay, so I got everything up and running now. I used a tutorial from an answer to the question you linked to. Here is a link: http://blog.eridlabs.com/using-iredmail-with-nginx-ubuntu-13-04-x64/ <br>Then I borrowed the part apart installing and configuring php5-fpm from your tutorial here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-ubuntu-12-04 <br>And finally disabled apache2 by running: sudo update-rc.d apache2 disable <br>

Thank you for your reply! Only using nginx seems like a cleaner and better solution. Thank you for your link too I also found some other resources that I hope will help me. I’ll report back when I have tried them out.
