Nginx enquiry

Oct 24, 2013 by TheRock
Greetings all
I am kind of new to servers and I need some information before I can publish my website. I want to use a pure SSD plan 4GB RAM from a wired tree. Should ask my web hosting provider  to install nginx for me? Would nginx act like and addon over my apache? Also is there any specific configuration required on the website for installing nginx? And would I need Litepeed as well?? I am a bit overwhelmed and would appreciate any advice
Thanks all

The SSD will support the I/O. NGINX is good for serving static content and you can use your apache for your dynamic content. There is no specific settings required on your website

Ask your hosting provider to install Nginx and there are no other settings required on the end user

you might also take a look into varnish or memcached for the caching of the static content in memory
