A couple of nginx utility scripts

In my previous nginx related post I promised to show a couple of utility scripts we use to simplify managing of multiple virtual hosts both under Apache and nginx. Well, here they come ;)


Speeding up Apache static content serving with nginx

Friday, September 28th, 2007

If you have not already tried using nginx, one of the fastest http and reverse proxy servers in the world, you definitely should try doing so!

Nginx can save lots of CPU cycles simply by “standing” before the main heavy http server(e.g. Apache) and taking the role of serving effectively all static content. Actually it can be your main and the only http server but that’s a story for another day since it will require quite a lot hassle if you already have many virtual hosts served by another server(Apache again).
