I was wondering.. when I set up a new Wordpress application, does that run on Nginx or on Apache? I would assume it runs on Apache seeing that the .htaccess works. If that's the case, is it possible to run it on Nginx? Because that's supposed to work a lot faster..

And does the same apply to a 'static/php' application? Regards,

Danny

It runs on a shared Apache instance, proxied behind our front-end Nginx server.

The same applies to all PHP apps that you install via our control panel.

If you want to server PHP apps from Nginx (for example, via PHP-FPM) then you'll need to build your own Nginx + PHP + PHP-FPM stack from source and run that as a 'custom app listening on port' application proxied behind our front-end Nginx.

Hope that helps!

Thanks that makes it clear for me! A friend of mine is working with the amazon cloud service and he's setting up Wordpress on Nginx without Apache, but for me that would be too much trouble..

Can i assume that my sites are on Apache rather than nginx. They are all using the STATIC app

@baba: It depends what kind of static app. If it's Static (HTML only) then it will be served by Nginx, otherwise PHP scripts etc. are still served via Apache also.
