In this tutorial we will be showing you how to setup the NGINX Web Server on your Raspberry Pi. It is a better alternative to Apache for the Raspberry Pi due to a few different reasons.
Some of the reasons NGINX is better on the Raspberry Pi is that it has a much lower memory usage and generally a lower CPU usage meaning you can get more out of your Raspberry Pi’s limited resources.
We will also show you how to configure NGINX to utilize PHP-FPM, this requires a slight bit of extra configuration to get up and running unlike PHP for Apache.
While NGINX has a bit more leg room then Apache, still don’t expect it to run any serious amount of traffic or perform any serious amount of PHP work.
