Request Help installing Nginx by replacing Apache
I like to install Nginx on a live server running apache with plesk control panel running on it.
I want to replace apache with Nginx. Can anybody guide me how to proceed ?
It is a live production server.So i have to workout fully before proceeding.
Waiting for your valuable replies.

Well, the first recommendation would be to *not* do that on a live system.
Second: Be sure of your reasons to switch:
Which needed features are available on nginx and not apache (and vice versa)?
Then get a list of features, that you currently use on the apache:
- rewriterules. The syntax in nginx is different, you need to rewite them from scratch
- virtualhosts, aliases
- access control, etc
In short: Analyze the requirements of your web applications (other than plesk, see below) and *test*, if they can run on nginx.
I dont use plesk, so I am not 100% sure.
But looking at that
Documentation - Parallels Plesk Panel Suite
and not finding nginx mentioned there, I think you wont have too much luck in running plesk.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
