Hi Vipsy,

Glad to see your interest and enthusiasm for our tutorials and nginx. Nginx is just a server software like Apache is. It is just incredibly faster. Getting into ‘full details’ of nginx is beyond the scope of this support forum, as this is intended for support for the nginx-helper plugin. In addition, it is beyond the scope of the community support that we can provide.

Having said that, there is a lot of easily digested information on nginx that you can find on google. You could start with the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nginx

Since nginx is just a server software that serves your wordpress application, it really doesn’t matter much whether you start on nginx or switch midway. The switch is a little technical and you might want to consider some professional assistance or a deeper study nginx.



By the way, did I mention that we also specialize in wordpress+nginx hosting and configuration. You might want to consider http://rtcamp.com/wordpress-nginx/


Thanxx Saurabh for the reply :slight_smile:
I read that wikipedia article and got an idea about nginx.
its requires a lot of coding…n to be true i dont know the c of coding :stuck_out_tongue:
my search is on…hope i find some explanation in easy english.


You don’t need to learn C language to use Nginx. Using is different than developing. In case you wish to develop a Nginx module or modify Nginx, then only you will need C.
