Running ASP.NET Web API services under Linux and OS X (link)

In this blog post I am going to show how you can host ASP.NET Web API services under Gentoo Linux and OS X on top of Mono’s ASP.NET implementation. I will use Nginx and FastCGI to communicate between HTTP server and Mono.

A couple of months ago I’ve experimented with running ASP.NET Web API on a Linux box, but ran into blocking issues caused by some functionality missing from Mono. I’ve decided to give it another go now when more recent versions of the runtime are available.
