After using Apache Webserver for 4 years I had no doubt of its simplicity and performance. Reading several articles about the comparison of apache and nginx [engine x], I came to a point of using nginx. Last night I kinda ditched apache and had a long time with nginx. I have now an nginx webserver with mysql and php or other call it “LEMP”. I found several tutorials of how to install nginx with php and mysql and found a lot of trash. I want to share the links I found which helped me setup a fully functional server. FYI, I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and as of now nginx has a latest stable version of 1.0.12.
Below are my suggestions on how to start knowing nginx and someday I can revisit these links for reference:
