Nginx As A Reverse Proxy

Nginx and Apache both, are powerful and effective servers. Apache is the #1 server for websites and Nginx has surged as the #2 server for active sites over the past few years. Apache is powerful and Nginx has high performance. We have combined the power of two for a great website performance by using Nginx on the front end and Apache on the backend.

Nginx and Apache both, are powerful and effective servers. Apache is the #1 server for websites and Nginx has surged as the #2 server for active sites over the past few years. Both have their own pros and cons like, Apache is powerful and Nginx has high performance while Apache is hard on server memory and Nginx (great at static files) needs the help of php-fpm or similar modules for dynamic content. We have combined the power of two for a great website performance by using Nginx on the front end and Apache on the backend.

 

How this combination works?

 

Under this, the server is configured to work as a ‘Reverse Proxy’. Nginx being on front end processes all the incoming requests from the website visitors, these requests are passed on to Apache which is working on the backend. Apache distinguishes the requests based on static and dynamic content. For the requests which are for static files like jpg, css, html, apache pass the request to the registered handlers and a response it returned to nginx, this response consists of the location of the requested files on the file system. For requests which are for dynamic files like a PHP script, Apache does the execution and send the response to Nginx and it is then delivered to the client.

 


Advantages of using this combination
 

Increased performance.

Static file requests are handled much more efficiently.

Server CPU and memory resources consumption decreases.

Load is reduced on Apache servers.

Efficiency in addressing the clients with slow connection improves.
