Description

For years, Apache, which is currently utilised by more than 100 million active websites, has been the de facto web server over the likes of IIS, GWS, Nginx and Lighttpd. However, due to the fact that Apache requires more resources and its performance tends to decrease as the number of concurrent connection increases, more sites are considering Nginx. This is being used either as the main http web server or it is being placed in front of the existing Apache server farm as a high-performance reverse-proxy server or OS based load balancer in a Cloud Computing infrastructure. This talk will look at some benchmark figures of Nginx and Apache and will cover how a PHP application can benefit from Nginx awesomeness.
