After my first post about nginx web and reverse-proxy server, I have received many e-mail comments and questions. One of the most popular questions was "How to use PHP with nginx?". This small howto-like article is about how to do it.
The Nginx software actually supports working with the FastCGI software which, in turn, can run your PHP scripts at a bit speedier pace. He walks you through a simple install, just enough to get things working, before giving you the script you'll need to get FastCGI to correctly work with PHP. Finally, he helps you configure the Nginx software to provide the final piece of the puzzle.
