Switch from Apache to nginx

is it possible / supported switch from Apache to nginx?
Thank you!

Nextcloud version : 12
Operating system and version : Ubuntu 16.04
Apache or nginx version : Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)
PHP version : PHP 7.0.15-0ubuntu0.16.04.4

nginx isn’t officially supported, but yes you can and many people in the community have done so.

Hi! In your opinion, will nginx be supported in near future?
Thank you again for your patience

I couldn’t say, but @jospoortvliet might know :slight_smile:

Hi, you can switch your webservers nearly on the fly. I have done this for testing proposes. A working sample configuration for nginx in the official doc: https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/11/admin_manual/installation/nginx_nextcloud_9x.html


Just today a post from a large setup of TU Berlin, they also switched to nginx:

With such large customers, it’s like official support.
