Anyone uses cPanel with NGINX as a replacement of Apache?
Just curious, why do you need cPanel? Wasted money and added load to your server for no reason.
Maybe not everyone has the experience enough to figure out how to do everything the "right" way and they are like me and need the "easy" way. To answer the OP question I have used it in the past when I ran my own VPS and it works really well. Alot faster than Apache. I can't remember what NGINX plugin I used but I could do everything for NGINX in WHM. Will do some searching and see if I can remember what I used. I know it was free. There are a few paid plugins.
digitalocean with cpaneL?Alright I installed nginx on a dedicated server and a VPS both using Cpanel. I used nginxcp.com which is free and installation takes only a few seconds. I do see a lot of difference in performance but it is more apparent on the underpowered VPS (digitalocean 8GB) and the Dedicated server doesnt really show much difference. I am not an expert but in my opinion you can use nginx if resources are a problem for you. The server load goes down as soon as nginx is installed. When I say goes down I mean it goes down by more then 50% kind of thing not a marginal difference but I did not see any noticeable changes in my dedicated server as load was never a problem with it but the VPS is flying ever since I installed nginx.
