Apache web server is best for processing server. However we find situations where we need to serve thousands of customers simultaneously for a high traffic website. Nginx helps in this situation.

Benchmark tests prove that nginx server can handle thousands of connections simultaneously with less RAM and processing.

But Nginx is only best for static content. So serve your website's static content with nginx server and dynamic content with apache.
