Since I'm migrating to a new server, I thought I'd give nGinX a try. The hype is that nGinX solves many of the problems that make Apache slow... I've been on LAMP for a long time... Now I'm curious what "LNMP" can do.
Some initial observations & questions:
1) nGinX was *very* easy to set up. I had it installed and serving a few virtual domains in less than 10 minutes. That's awesome.
2) seems like my usual "yum php" etc isn't going to cut it. nGinX requires something called "PHP-FPM"?
3) Will an app written for PHP on Apache run equally well (functionally) on nGinx? What about all my favourite PECL modules, like JSON and memcache, mysql et al
4) Wordpress does some funny stuff to .htaccess - will that work on nGinX? Several of my sites have a WP blog attached; if WordPress won't work out of the box, that's a deal breaker.
