Hello to CS-Cart team and everyone who's using CS-Cart.

 

Could you provide some benchmarks of CS-Carts tested at both environments and your experience with installed CS-Cart on Apache or NGINX server?

At this moment in time and am using our CS Cart stores on a Cpanel server running Nginx as a proxy (not doing very good job at it but that might be a config issue).

Ngnix is going to help when a server runs under load.  The vast majority of cs-cart stores run maybe 1-2 concurrent users.  Hence, I'd expect any result to be minuscule. Put your energy into marketing, then solve the load problem when you have one! :-)

Agree... secondly, who of the people here knows, WHAT is nginx really doing?

Personally I prefer NGINX for its configuration syntax and low exclusive memory usage under high request concurrency.

 

However some of my colleagues claim that well-tuned Apache httpd can be as good as nginx under load. I usually don't bother myself with debates.

...for static pages yes... not for php parsed results...

You must have just more than 2 concurrent users on your CS Cart so what is that you have configured and why Nginx as I presume you are and not just Apache ? Did you configure your server by yourself or did you reach out to a specialist ?

For everything: starting from static content like CSS/JS assets or images ending to high-concurrent proxying to FCGI.

My site has very low volume and I don't run Nginx.

Can someone of CS-Cart team provide some benchmarks regarding the title of this topic? E.g. CS-Cart demo site running on Apache, Nginx and LAMP+Nginx to avoid frustration of customers, that their carts are slow because they don't have Nginx but don't know about things for example like overloaded VPSs?

We use Nginx at the Highload Demo.
