Default Go from Apache to Nginx

Hello folks,

I had originally followed the tutorial here:

Which of course set me up with apache. I have however become real interested in Nginx. So I would like to utilize the tutorial here:

Now in the Nginx tutorial it states:

If Apache2 is already installed on the system, stop it now...

/etc/init.d/apache2 stop

... and remove Apache's system startup links:

update-rc.d -f apache2 remove

Start nginx afterwards:

/etc/init.d/nginx start

(If both Apache2 and nginx are installed, the ISPConfig 3 installer will ask you which one you want to use - answer nginx in this case. If only one of these both is installed, ISPConfig will do the necessary configuration automatically.)

My questions:

1. Are those above the only required steps?

2. Should I reformat and start from new or just go through Nginx tutorial verbatim and then make sure Ispconfig uses Nginx?

3. Can you switch from Apache to Nginx once ISPConfig 3 is already installed and has sites and clients?

As always folks thanks for the advice and help,
