I have a social networking site and because of that we want to run ssl all the time. does this defeat the purpose of using any type of cache system for even static content since everything will be ssl?
Could nginx be used to still cache even if it is ssl?
Right now I have nginx in front of apache but all it does is send dynamic requests to apache over port 80
edit: basically what i am trying to do is find the best way to take a lot of requests as we are getting a lot of traffic and want to ensure we keep performance going.
