Excerpt

This talk will look at some benchmark figures of various popular web servers and will cover how a PHP web application can benefit from Nginx awesomeness, and some working integration with node.js

Description

Apache, which is currently utilised by more than 175 million active websites,
has been the de facto web server over the likes of IIS, GWS, Nginx and Lighttpd for many years. 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 web application can benefit from Nginx awesomeness, and some working integration with node.js
