Dotdeb has always wanted to help you to build robust and featureful LAMP stacks. As of Debian 6.0 “Squeeze”, some useful tools are now supported and actively maintained on Dotdeb :
- PHP 5.3 and its new FPM flavour
- the Xhprof, PHPredis and Pinba extensions
- the Pinba MySQL storage engine
- the Redis key-value store
It is now time for me to introduce the long-awaited Nginx…
Nginx is a lightweight, high-performance Web server that relies on an asynchronous event-driven approach to handle HTTP requests. It behaves well under heavy load, even better than Apache (threaded or forked). Nginx can work with PHP through FPM or FastCGI (respectively packaged as php5-fpm and php5-cgi).
All the (many) features of Nginx are configured during its building process and it is unable to load additionnal modules without rebuilding. This design leads to very good performances and a little footprint on the system.
Don’t hesitate to visit the Nginx website for more information…
I’m proud to announce that Dotdeb now maintains Nginx in its stable version (0.8.54). As in the official Debian builds, three distinct packages are available, depending on which modules you need :
Don’t hesitate to thank me if you enjoy it 🙂
