I have a Mediatemple server (Centos / Plesk) running LAMP in a live website.
I've seen tutorials explaining how to install nginx but I don't understand how it should be done in a live server.
If I'm not wrong I need to install nginx and run it on a different port to see that everything is working. Then when everything is working I switch its port to 80 and kill apache.
If this is the case., I have a few questions.
Will it work with php in parallel to Apache? (isn't there a changes in php configuration for nginx?).
How can I test https connections (they have dedicated port so I can't use a different port to make it work in parallel to apache.
I would appreciate any advice about installing, testing and switching to nginx on a live server without interrupting the current traffic.
