OK I'm looking at a server setup of CentOS 6 on Nginx and MySQL
As I'm basically dumb I have no idea what the real benefits my site would have over the conventional setup below:
CentOS 6.5 on Apache and MySQLi
I'm asking because I need to know would my Xenforo (and gallery) have any significant performance increase out of the box... Or am I expected to learn Nginx to be able to get any real benefit from it.
At the moment I have about 2k visitors a day (that includes bots and guests) and on the Apache setup I'm running in to memory problems on a 2gb and although I intend to upgrade this to 4gb I want the system to use the ram more responsibly.
I've looked through the forum and it seems that the Nginx debates stopped about a couple of years ago and that is why I'm asking. Things have moved on... is this old hat now.
I'm not overly proud of my PageSpeed Insights and would like to improve on them M66/D81
