How to Configure Nginx to Execute PHP Using PHP-FPM


Nginx is pronounced as “Engine-X”, which is a web server and reverse proxy server. Nginx is well known for its speed and ability to handle large number of requests simultaneously with optimal use of resources.

PHP-FPM stands for “PHP-FastCGI process manager”. CGI refers to the common gateway interface which is scripted to work as a interface between the web server and dynamic content serving programs. It listens on a port much like the web server itself does, and passes the request between the PHP and web server.
