Is Apache really much more memory hungry?
 
Hello.
I have set up 2 vps servers.
Both is installed from the guides here at howtoforge.com
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...nx-ispconfig-3 nginx
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ot-ispconfig-3 apache2

When i now looked at memory the vps with nginx are using much more memory then the vps with apache2.

Is nginx using more in idle but dosnt take more when it works, and are apache using nothing when its idle and uses much when it worked?

I cant see why i should have nginx for a low cost vps.
Am i wrong?

Do both servers have the same workload? The same amount of websites, etc.? Do you run the same services (like MySQL, etc.) on both - with the exact same configuration?

From my experience I can say that nginx uses less resources (by far) than Apache.

Everything is exactly the same installed.
I followed the guides i wrote in the first post.

Please post the top outputs. How did you configure PHP-FPM? Do you use the ondemand process manager?

Hello.
I have now already closed the vps with nginx.
Maybe its best for me to use apache2. I dont have the skills to configure so good.
