cPanel does not support nginx officially, but you can install nginx on a cPanel server. Keep in mind that you will have to either configure it manually or use a plugin such as nginxcp to do that.

You can use Apachebooster. I’m using it currently on my Cpanel droplet and no issues so far. Before Apachebooster I was using nginxcp plugin as @kamaln7 mentioned on his answer but every so often I would have some issues and I would have to manually clean up the tmp folder.

ApacheBooster also includes Varnish.

someone managed to make it work?

Hello, all

You can use Engintron in order to run/install Nginx on your cPanel/WHM server.

Engintron is fully compatible with CentOS version 5, 6 and 7 on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. Additionally, users have already reported a 100% compatibility with CloudLinux versions 6 & 7.

Engintron is also compatible with both EasyApache 3 and EasyApache 4 as of version 1.7.0.

Installation is a process that lasts only a few minutes. You’ll need root SSH access to your cPanel server. Also check the current requirements (listed lower). If everything is ok, log in as root and type the following commands, one at a time:

wget --no-check-certificate; bash install
