Can your website handle 10,000 requests at once? Most PHP applications run on Apache by default with limited or no caching. This becomes a huge problem when your site comes under any serious load. Nginx is a high-performance webserver that can demonstrably handle more simultaneous connections than stock Apache with a dramatically reduced memory footprint. Used in conjunction with Memcached or other cache mechanisms, you can easily handle anything the web throws at you with relatively little hardware. This talk should cover how to install and configure nginx with PHP (via fastcgi/php-fpm) and give an overview on how to set up and used Memcached in conjunction with an opcode cache (APC) in your PHP application.
