  • Apache vs Nginx, which one is the best for vBulletin forum?

    Anyone here is using Nginx web server for your vBulletin forum? especially for vB4, I am going to move from Apache to Nginx but not sure Nginx is more better than Apache.

    The honest answer is: it depends.

    If the only concern is the performance gain and lower resources usage then by all means nginx paired with php-fpm environment is by far the best choice out there.

    If you relying on some extensions that are available only to Apache (like suphp, mod_rewrite although the rewriting rules can be converted to nginx format) then having a hybrid environment (nginx as front-end and Apache as back-end) would better suit your needs.

    Nginx has by far a less resource usage and provides better performance but the only misfortune, when compared to Apache, is that it lacks some features that are available only to Apache users.

    Kind regards,
