I see a lot of people praising Nginx and its performance over Apache. Got interested in setting this up myself, however it isn’t officially supported by Nextcloud. Still, performance could persuade one to try, right?
From what I can gather, Nginx is much faster than Apache on static content. In other words if you serve lots of files then this is the server for you. However when it comes to dynamic content, Apache is just as fast. *
Since Nextcloud is serving all files dynamically through PHP, I see no real benefit with the hassle of Nginx. With recent security issues and the latest news about copyright infringement, I think the choice should be clear.
What are your opinions on this? Why do you choose Nginx in favour of Apache? I’d really like to know.
