Is it necessarily advantageous to serve my Ghost instances here with nginx rather than Apache?

Posted April 16, 2016 2.2k views

I’m wondering if there are any benefits to changing my Ghost instances to be served via nginx vs Apache. I need the layman’s answer to this. My sites don’t get much traffic - this is merely for educational purposes, really.

well apache is simpler to configure, but nginx is way better with higher traffic and lighter on resources
if your site has little traffic and your new to nginx, then apache is good way to go before you step up when your site gets more traffic

you can always check out lighttpd, its as light on resources as nginx
i myself use lighttpd, mainly due to its configure layout and experience with it in the past

I appreciate the advice. Have you heard of this other webserver called Caddy?
