Web service and reverse proxy with the speedy nginx
Adding nginx as a caching reverse proxy to an existing httpd setup can significantly increase the performance of your existing infrastructure. Additionally, using some of the more advanced features in nginx will give you greater flexibility and might allow you to accomplish tasks that weren't feasible with your previous setup. I suggest you read the online documentation (Figure 1) and familiarize yourself with nginx before deploying it in a production environment.
