Nginx and PHP Fundamentals

by Elton Stoneman

Nginx and PHP are two of the biggest platforms on the Web. Get up and running with these lightweight, easy to learn technologies that provide high-performance solutions with low operating costs.

What you'll learn

PHP powers more dynamic Web content that any other platform, and Nginx is the fastest growing HTTP server on the Internet. In this course, you'll start from the ground up learning how to host static HTML and dynamic PHP sites in Nginx, and how to build websites in PHP that interact with the user, and integrate with cloud services like Windows Azure and Amazon AWS. The course takes a hands-on approach, migrating an ASP.NET MVC website to PHP, and you'll see performance and cost comparisons for the two stacks.
