For the last decade or so this blog and a few other websites were hosted by WideXS. After doing some research I came to the conclusion that it made more sense to move my sites to TransIP because they are cheaper and offer a full VM instead of limited hosting from WideXS. At the same time I also decided to replace Apache’s webserver with ningx and php-fpm . With the help of Packt’s Nginx HTTP Server book the migration went pretty smooth and nginx seems to perform quite a bit better than Apache did. If you encounter any problems please leave a comment.
