Nginx VS Apache for WordPress which is perfect?

Apache

The Apache web server, first released in 1995 and now the most popular of its kind worldwide, has a lot to be proud of.

The work done by this software is responsible for up to 80% or more internet traffic on any given day.

In my opinion none of them is best for wordpress only LiteSpeed web servers are efficient and fastest then these

Developed and maintained by an independent foundation with detailed licensing information available through their website (www.apache foundation).

it still remains as one of the world’s leading offerings when compared against other options like Microsoft's IIS or Netscape Enterprise Server 2 - but that doesn't mean people are satisfied! Improved versions continue to receive updates from time to time while there have been some who disagree about how best they should handle "legacy."

Apache’s name originates from the Native American heritage, but some people believe that it is a pun on “a patchy server.” Apache has been around for more than 20 years and since its beginning in 1995, there have been over 18 million downloads of their free web server software!

When you hear about Apache these days or see an icon with two feathers above what looks like an eye near your computer mouse cursor; don't worry…it's just another program trying to protect us while we surf online.

Short info about nginx......

Nginx was created by the Russian developer Igor Sysoev in 2004. It came about for scaling purposes after he successfully scaled website rambler.ru with it previously, which provided him with a new lucrative business venture that has since expanded to include Nginx Plus and open source versions of both licenses available on their site today!

Nginx is an alternative webserver to Apache written specifically as a response/counterbalance against its performance limitations (such as slowness). As project manager Owen Garrett said: "Ngnix was written specifically to address the performance limitations of Apache web servers."

Which one is best for WordPress?

Apache or Nginx as the most robust and feature-abundant servers for running WordPress, but any server that supports PHP and MySQL will do.

A quick side note: if you only have older versions of either Apache (2) or MySQL 5.0+, then your site may not run well with WordPress on it because they don't work as efficiently when newer technologies come out; upgrade them!

Apache is a powerful, free web hosting service that can host many sites at once while still being fast enough to keep up with traffic spikes--incidentally, this also makes it one of the best hosts for managing multiple blogs in networks like WPEngine's BlogKing plan.

I always prefer LiteSpeed webserver because it is ultra-fast to deliver my content as compare to Nginx or Apache.

LiteSpeed is the perfect solution for businesses, companies, or individuals with websites that receive heavy traffic.

The software can be used to serve high volumes of content without taxing your system's resources such as memory and CPU. No other web server comes close when it comes to serving static content quickly!
