basically when a nginx map file updates, user need to reload nginx server config.

normally using command: service nginx reload (on ubuntu)

above command needs sudo/root access so php with www-data can't run it out of the box....

Trick is, detect php-user - value of _SERVER["USER"]

assume it www-data

ask user to edit sudoers file so www-data can reload nginx config

they will add following line...

www-data ALL=NOPASSWD: nginx -t && service nginx reload

Then we will reload nginx config whenever we update map via PHP

<?php shell_exec('sudo nginx -t && service nginx reload'); ?>

There may be some mistake and some error checking in above

Get Mitesh involved as he is good at shell scripting

Maps are not required for wordpress 3.6 onwards.

So closing this ticket as any more work on this will benefit legacy sites only.
