What kind of server?


I'm about to rent a dedicated server to run my ELGG site on. We are however a bit short on staff and we really need the server to be secure and stable (and fast).

I need to decide on which kind of http server will serve me best. I have been thinking about apache, nginx and lighttpd. If I'll be looking at this site, I'd be inclined to go for nginx. Also this page makes me think NginX is about the thing I'm looking for. But the most important thing of course will be ... Will it run? if I move an existing install from an apache location to another one?

Does anybody has any experience here?
