Nginx + Reverse Proxy Caching = Static Content Speed

Yes, if you’ve recently noticed, this site is now powered by nginx working as a reverse proxy.

So what does this mean? A WordPress blog running on low-end hardware on steroids. Yes this also can be done with Apache2, but I prefer nginx with PHP-FPM sitting as a backend because of the simplicity of configuring it in the first place 😉

Also thanks to the latest move from my old hosting provider to a VPS, I can run this WordPress site out of my home DSL connection with nginx being the reverse proxy and caching those responses 😉
