    I am using Squid3 as a web cache, and I set it up with Aapche2. Can Squid3 be set up with Nginx? Anybody has this experience to share? Thanks. :)

    I can't find this information in my Squid3 ebook.

    I heard that Nginx is 50 times faster than Apache2.

    You might want to think about replacing both Apache and Squid with one nginx instance because nginx can handle caching as well: http://www.howtoforge.com/why-you-should-always-use-nginx-with-microcaching

    It is also possible to use nginx as a reverse proxy (replacing Squid):

    I'm not sure if it makes sense to use Squid with nginx - I could imagine that Squid could become the bottleneck and thwart Squid.

    Sounds very Nice!

    I think Nginx has at least one drawback: Its does not have a good webmin module.
