Which one to use for my App back-end: Nginx or Apache?
I have this app/social network i’m about to launch.
The back-end uses PHP+ MySQL to serve the Mobile app (iOS and Android)
I read a lot of things but they are very confused. They are not CLEAR if an application using APACHE (get data from database receiving in json, load images, load and send messages, post text, etc) will really be faster just because it’s a dynamic content WHEN we’re scaling (like many people using at the same time).
Some say it’s the same, some say apache is faster, some test i saw showed nginx faster than apache even for dynamic content when there’s more than 10 requests at the same time.
Anyone would tell me if an API (php+mysql) for a mobile app would be faster on APACHE or NGINX? (DEFAULT installation, im not talking about ninja tricks)
