Which one is better?


#1

I still wonder which one is better for performance

Pure nginx + php-fpm

Or

Nginx + apache2 + proxy_cache

Anybody knows about this?

Can not say about apache2 vs php-fpm, but you can use fastcgi_cache too.


#3

Is there any help page regarding fastcgi_cache? Or it’s the same format
as
proxy_cache?

Yes, just s/proxy/fastcgi/.

The single difference is that fastcgi cache requires

  fastcgi_cache_key   localhost:9000$request_uri;

while proxy_cache may use default one, similar to this:

proxy_cache_key $scheme$proxy_host$uri$is_args$args;


#5

I already tried this

Here’s the config

fastcgi_cache_path  /data/nginx/cache  levels=1:2 keys_zone=one:10m

inactive=7d max_size=200m;
fastcgi_temp_path /data/nginx/temp;

    location @joomla {
        fastcgi_pass   127.0.0.1:9000;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME 

/home/kompastv/web/index.php;
fastcgi_cache one;
fastcgi_cache_key 127.0.0.1:9000$request_uri;
fastcgi_cache_valid 200 1h;

/data/nginx/cache and /data/nginx/temp is still empty

root 28119 0.0 0.0 13940 496 ? Ss 15:41 0:00 nginx:

is there somethink i’ve missed?

Does fastcgi return Expires or Cache-Control headers which may forbid
caching ?


#7

How do i check that? Becase i’m using default configuration

If you use Firefox:
http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org

Could you create debug log ?


#9

Please check http://pastebin.com/d448b8b03

I’ve uploaded the livehttpheaders

At least

http://www.kompas-tv.com/modules/mod_smo_ajax_shoutbox_css.php

should be cacheable. Probably it is handled by not @joomla, but by
something like location ~ “.php$”.

Could you run

egrep ‘cacheable|error|crit’ /var/log/nginx/error.log

?


#12

location ~ .php$ {
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME
/home/myhome/web$fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_index index.php;

fastcgi_cache_key 127.0.0.1:9000$request_uri;
fastcgi_cache_valid 200 1h;
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
}

It seems that the /data/nginx/cache directory now have some files :smiley:

So that the location which is go to @joomla will be cached aswell?

Oh, and this is on nginx 0.6.34:

Build nginx with debug log, then grep the lines:

test location: “…”
test location: “…”
test location: “…”
test location: “…”
using configuration “…”


#18

This command serves the right directories, and pipes them through php:

location /careers) {
    root /home/artwelove/_current/web/www.artwelove.com-news/news;

include /usr/local/nginx/_macros/php.conf;
index index.php index.html;
}

This command serves the right directories, but does not pipe them
through php:

location ~ /careers {
    root /home/artwelove/_current/web/www.artwelove.com-news/news;

include /usr/local/nginx/_macros/php.conf;
index index.php index.html;
}

I can’t figure this one out… This is a simplified example, but just
changing the location to a regex kills the php ability

Anyone have a clue ?

you forgot to include what your php.conf or whatever it was says
