Apache vs Nginx

Recommended Posts

Apache and Nginx are the two most common open source web servers in the world. Which one do you use?

I'm running Nginx. Not for any particular reason and I have no opinion one way or the other.

I use nginx for my static content (css/js/img) and Apache with Varnish for my dynamic content. So my IPB setup splits the static/dynamic content. Very helpful with performance & load.

​That's really cool. How did you accomplish that?

I'm wondering why you're using this configuration. Does it give you any benefits over JUST NGiNX with PHP fpm? Using all three seems like it'd use a lot of resources unnecessarily.

​That is true. I'd like to run a speed test on WebFlake vs. that site.
