#askfediverse so I have been considering switching from apache to nginx... I am running many services on numerous virtual hosts, including several reverse proxies... do you think I will notice considerable performance increase by switching to nginx? Especially my Nextcloud+CollaboraOffice has gotten slow with latest updates.... thx
@gabor Is there lots of concurrent traffic on some of those vhosts, or is it mostly just personal stuff? As far as I understand, nginx is better dealing with concurrent connections, but that might not make a big difference for smaller projects.
@brecht actually I am not that hot about moving all the config and learning the syntax. I got everything running nice and stable with Apache for now... it's just that I see most new open source projects having better support for nginx and I was wondering if migrating is something I would have to do sooner or later anyway...
@gabor I'd be very surprise if Apache lacked any core features to run those newer projects. But you're right, there's a lot more documentation for nginx these days, so it's probably useful to at least understand the syntax on a higher level to be able to "translate" it to Apache.
