Moving To NGINX From Apache

Justin Warren of eigenmagic comments:


I’ve been a longtime user of the Apache webserver. I think I first installed and configured a 1.x release somewhere in the late 90s, which is longer ago than I often realise.

The last time I looked at NGINX as an alternative to Apache was, similarly, quite a while ago. At the time, the feature parity wasn’t sufficient for it to replace what I needed my Apache install to do, which was a combination of outbound webserving and reverse-proxying of internal services.

A lot has changed. NGINX is now absolutely a viable alternative to Apache for basically everything I thought I needed Apache for.
