How HIPAA Compliance Affects Employees

Did you know that more than 113 million people were affected by a HIPAA compliance breach in 2015? That’s an increase of 107 million from just five years ago.

Hitesh Jethva September 30, 2019 by under VPS Hosting 0 Comments

There are several reasons you want to use multiple versions of PHP with Nginx on your server. If you have two applications, one application which runs on PHP 7.0 and a second application which runs on PHP 7.2, then you must use multiple PHP versions on your server.

How to Setup Nginx as a Reverse Proxy for Apache on Ubuntu 18.04 VPS

Hitesh Jethva September 22, 2019 by under VPS Hosting 0 Comments

Apache and Nginx are free, open-source and the most widely used web servers in the world. Apache is the number one server, while Nginx comes in the second place. Apache is known for its power and the backend compatibility while Nginx is known for its speed. Nginx provides a rich set of features including load balancing, security, and acceleration. Using Nginx as a reverse proxy allows you to use these features for any web application.

Configuring a reverse proxy helps you to hide the identity of your backend servers and protect your servers from attacks. A reverse proxy also performs load balancing and distributes client request across backend servers. This can very helpful when some servers become overloaded due to a sudden spike in client requests.

Using Nginx as a reverse proxy for Apache will allow both servers to work together and allow you to take advantage of the benefits of both servers. You can easily monitor what traffic goes in and out through the reverse proxy.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to install and configure Nginx as a reverse proxy for Apache on Ubuntu 18.04 VPS. We will configure Apache to run on port 8080, configure Nginx to run on port 80, and forward client requests coming on port 80 to the Apache webserver.
