    Hello folks,

    I am planning on doing my first multi-server installation. There is division amongst my partners about apache vs nginx. I would like to try both.

    We have all email exchange hosted and use a dns service so we only need web servers, file servers and mysql servers.

    My question is could I have:

    1 Apache webserver/file server
    1 nginx webserver/file server
    1 mysql server

    All cooperating and playing nicely to where if "site a" needs nginx then I can select it, but if "site b" needs apache and mod rewrite I can select that one for it?

    I know Till said the nginx section of the new manual hasn't been written yet, I am sure the new manual would answer my question but I am an impatient prick lol

    Thanks fellas,
