The book has been modularised quite well to allow for separation of learning outcomes.For example, a reader already familiar with how to install nginx can confidently skip chapter 1 and jump right into the meat of configuring the server.Even for people extremely familiar with nginx, you will find this book extremely helpful as a reference for neat tips to optimise your server for best performance. (check out Chapter 8: Introducing Load Balancing and Optimization)Best of all, unlike a lot of technical books i find myself reading, this book was quite easy to read, a lot of books in this domain tend to be far too dense and end up disengaging the reader

There a quite a few books out on Nginx which reflects on the popularity of this web server. I figured any book making it to a 3rd edition had to be good and I was not disappointed. The material is well organized which allows the reader the opportunity to read the information in whatever order they need dependent on their expertise.I was migrating from Apache and found that section of the book to be very useful. I did not appreciate how Nginx could make enabling SSL certificates so much easier than Apache until I read 'Setting up an SSL Certificate' in Chapter 4 and 'Securing Communications with HTTPS' in Chapter 9.The book is not only informative but readable which is unusual in a technical book. I hope the 4th edition explains the limitations of the windows version of Nginx now that it is available. Highly recommended!Jim Dale

I strongly recommend this book if you are a Web Administrator, a System Administrator, or an Hobbyist who would like to build a production grade Web Server using Nginx. The book started with an overview on why Nginx is the truly a lightweight and powerful web server being used by many enterprises today, then explain how to install it from source and using package managers, then finishes with a Production grade set up example.The author, Clement Nedelcu has years of experience in administering Nginx Servers for big enterprises so if you would like to prevent yourself from hitting the wall or spending too much time on Google, then this book will save your life and help you start quickly with your awesome web project.

I would say I'm an intermediate user of Nginx and I wanted to have a good reference book it. This book fits the bill. It covers the basics as well as some advanced configurations. Whether you are a starter or have used Nginx but want more, this book is for you.

One of my favorite books so far. Before this book I just known that Nginx were a fast web server and this lead me to have interest to read this book, but Nginx it is much more, it was what I needed to know now to have more efficient web server. This book introduce Nginx history and features, than you will learn how to download and install the required libraries, requirements and basic usage. I liked that this book teach the different points of this kind of server, the advantages and how to use it. I have used Apache in basic projects, I'm not a specialist, but I like to improve my work, so I've been searching for new technologies, and the chapters that compare and teach how to use Apache Nginx together to achieve better results are my favorite because with the background of the author I could understand the point of view of a much more experienced user, this is the best part of this book. The use of Wordpress and ownCloud was a great example of how easy is to use this HTTP server. I would like to recommend this book for everyone interested in Web in general.
