Speeding up websites

Though still under testing, Nginx (or Lighttpd) could soon replace Apache as the web server for at least some of my sites. It is ultra fast and efficient and quite simple to configure.

I have yet to receive a lot of traffic on my blog. The current hits hardly cause a dent in the memory, CPU or bandwidth usage. But whenever I get slashdotted (fingers crossed) or the site becomes extremely popular, I now have a number of techniques in place for keeping the site up and performing well.
