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.
It’s also just… easier.;
Dropping heavy apps for streamlined things is the wave of the future. Let Justin help you make your next lightweight move.
