Thanks for the suggestion, Steve. I was working from that angle before based on advice from a person at my hosting company and had used the nginx repo. I am addressing three points in response. Any suggestions/thoughts from you and/or others are appreciated.

(1) Reason for nginx and apache:
The reason I am planning to use nginx on the front end and apache on the back end (instead of nginx for all of it) is that I've read in an article that apache’s power and nginx’s speed are well known. But apache is hard on server memory, and nginx (while great at static files) needs the help of php-fpm or similar modules for dynamic content. The article goes on to recommend that you combine the two web servers, with nginx as static web server front and apache processing the back end. My application has a lot of dynamic content including videos, and makes use of ajax and jquery.

What are your and others thoughts on the nginx / apache / both question?


(2) Your command to get the nginx repo:
when I tried this again with your specific command, I got:
[m@01 ~]$ rpm -Uvh http://nqinx.org/packages/centos/6/noarch/RPMS/nginx-release-centos-6-0.el6.ngx.noarch.rpm
Retrieving http://nqinx.org/packages/centos/6/noarch/RPMS/nginx-release-centos-6-0.el6.ngx.noarch.rpm
curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'nqinx.org'
error: skipping http://nqinx.org/packages/centos/6/noarch/RPMS/nginx-release-centos-6-0.el6.ngx.noarch.rpm - transfer failed


(3) Past attempt at installing nginx in a similar way:
I'm pasting the output from this past attempt in case anyone can see what might be missing or wrong...
