nginx – Webserver

So, Apache HTTPD for Web-Server and Lighttpd as a smaller, better performing one.

I now, after someone told me about it I checked it out, took a first look on nginx (wikip), a Web-Server and Load-Balancer in one.

What I read about it just as well as what I tried, it looks really promising.

You can even easily redirect for example php script calls to an already running Apache webserver, or of course use fastCGI to run them directly.

Its modular structure is also pretty cool.

I’ll further check into it.

And if you need to decide on a webserver, check this one out too!
