A few years ago, we switched our web server from Apache to Nginx. I'm not really sure why now. It's not like it's significantly less annoying to configure, and we don't need the scale.

Actually, no, I do know why. Two words: ooh, shiny!


This seems an entirely adequate reason in all situations. ^_^

@porsupah Yeah, but I'm trying to work on my impulse control issues these days.


Still, what is temptation for if not to be yielded to? =:)

@Querral I've personally found it sliiightly less annoying to configure. At least it's a little less obscure

I can kiiiiind of understand what each option is doing rather than "copy and paste this gigantic block, but if you change anything you're screwed"

@socks You're not wrong. At our last job, we had to teach the IT ops chief how to do Apache configuration.
