Dedicated + nginx + passenger + django

I’m trying for the above setup and was wondering what the best instructions are? All the nginx/passenger instructions seem to be for VPSs. I need dedicated.

Maybe: dedicated + nginx + uwsgi?

Is it best to use uwsgi now the shipped version of nginx is >0.8.4? Though I’m hazy on if I’d need to use upstart or sysvinit (neither of which I’ve used before).

I’m quite lost here and am looking for a robust setup to upgrade to (from VPS).
