For that fresh new feeling I switched this site from Apache2 to Nginx. A quick compile of the source package and following the instructions on hooking it up with Wordpress over fastcgi using php-cgi and we’re done!
Feels good with a server handling the C10K problem - and it has a fairly decent configuration language IMHO.
Also looking forward to use Nginx more in the days to come as a the web frontend for development tools server at work hosting, among some things:
Will post more about this later!
