Question

nginx reverse proxy vs ngx_pagespeed - plz vote

Hi everyone,

Day by day I find Ngixn is very interesting for many reasons, And I believe most of you know why!!

Today I ran into an article on how to setup ngx_pagespeed, a plugin that Nginx uses to speed up the page load time: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-ngx_pagespeed-module-to-nginx-in-debian-wheezy

I also ran into nginx reverse proxy which seemed to me another interesting way of caching images, css and others:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-configure-nginx-as-a-front-end-proxy-for-apache

now I’m concerned about both, but not sure if any of you have used either one. please give me your feedback about this topic.

any comment is appreciated!!

Thanks

<blockquote>php5-fpm issue not being working unless I add its code to the config file.</blockquote>What do you mean?

Thanks @Kamal for your comment, <br> <br>I checked that tut some time ago, but I believe it is not complete because I run into php5-fpm issue not being working unless I add its code to the config file. if I did that, then apache is going to work with php-fpm, but not nginx. I guess there is something missing, but not sure what it is… <br> <br>any idea?
