Nginx is a lightweight HTTP server designed for high-traffic websites, with network scalability as the primary objective. With the advent of high speed Internet access, short loading times and fast transfer rates have become a necessity. This free, open source solution will either come as a full replacement of other software such as Apache, or stand in front of your existing infrastructure to improve its overall speed.
"Nginx HTTP Server - Second Edition" provides a detailed guide to setting up Nginx in different ways that correspond to actual production situations: as a standalone server, as a reverse proxy, interacting with applications via FastCGI and more. In addition, the complete directive reference will be your best friend at all stages of the configuration and maintenance processes.
This book is the perfect companion for both Nginx beginners and experienced administrators. For beginners, it will take you through the complete process of setting up this lightweight HTTP server on your system and configuring its various modules to get it to do exactly what you need, in a fast and secure way. For more experienced administrators, this book provides different angles of approach that can help you make the most of your current infrastructure. Nginx can be employed in many situations, whether you are looking to construct an entirely new web-serving architecture or simply want to integrate an efficient tool to optimize your site loading speeds.
This book takes you through the setup and configuration of Nginx by detailing every step of the way, from downloading to configuring your server in a selection of common architectures.

Toutefois, trop peu différentiant par rapport au web... Je le recommande pour travailler hors connexion ou pour creuser certains modules.

Perhaps in the next edition, an implementation of a real deployment could be described, in the last chapter.
Because there are so few books on Nginx, and because I think it is a web server worth learning about, I'm going to post another lukewarm review of this book. It is improved over the previous edition and is still filled with excellent technical information, but you still have to slog through writing samples like this, from the preface:
...for the past few years the same reports reveal the rise of a new competitor: Nginx, a lightweight HTTP server originating from Russia (pronounced engine X). There have been many interrogations surrounding this young web server. Why has the blogosphere become so effervescent about it?...
That is almost identical to the awkward quote I included in my 2010 review of the first edition. A couple of words have been changed, so this was obviously read and updated, but to call it edited is to slight real copy editors.
Bottom line: I don't have anything new to say over the last edition, except that today there are other books in print, including the recently reviewed and better book on Nginx, Mastering Nginx, also by Packt. Take a look at the tables of contents for the two books and compare them. If the topics covered in Mastering Nginx are enough for your purposes, buy that book. If you need the information that is in this book but not in that one, then Nginx HTTP Server is still your best bet, even with its weaknesses. This information is hard to find anywhere else, and that is why I'm reviewing this book.
As aforementioned, this title is for beginners, people that have never played with Nginx. Anyone interested in some real world, decently serious problem-solution won’t find anything worth reading here. Forget to find inhere a step by step guide to get you compiling Nginx from the source with Passenger to serve both Ruby on Rails and Django.
It’s a book for beginners. As such, it starts with an “Hello world!”-like chapter that guides you through the installation process, which is very likely to get done through Aptitude.
Three chapters are then dedicated to the basic configuration of Nginx. This is by far the best part of the whole book. What I find particularly interesting here, is the choice of the author to present different configurations to serve different load scenarios. Mind, nothing fancy or critical, but it gives you an idea of the overall configuration of the web server.
A quick introduction to how CGI evolved gets us to chapter five, where Nginx meets FastCGI. The chapter is merely theoretical. Code snippets are as rare as unicorn sightings, but still, Clement gives an idea how to combine it with PHP and Python.
Finally the author gets to the relationship between Apache and Nginx, covering different flavors: the story starts with how they can be combined, coexisting and gets up to the point where Nginx can replace Apache.
The book itself is not bad. But it feels more like a reference, rather than a companion to the official documentation. The different options are described one by one, page after page, which is something the official website should do. I would also like to see more images, showing me the overall picture and how the different components fit into place. Those few images present could have had better quality.
So, given the very few choices out there, this book is recommended but only to newbies. Whoever is able to get Nginx up and running from the source will only get bored with this title.
