i currently run apache 2 with php5.1.6 running as mod_php on a centos 5.6 box,
I use .htaccess for mostly redirection I already have latest APC running apc.so I also have mysql etc
Until recently ive been reading things like; 1) running php as fastcgi benefits on high traffic sites 2) Read something about squid being used as a proxy for static content.
all this time my confusion is increasing.... then i finally landed on lighttpd which seems to encompass all those optmizations.
Problem is, there is no uptodate article covering the complete migration from apache to lighttpd.
Secondly, Ive read a little on lighttpd being used as a proxy for apache serving static content.
Which is better? complete migration or start from scratch using lighttpd or simply setting httpd as a proxy.
Please include relevant references where possible.
