Why is Apache recommened over NGINX?

Describe the issue or problem
Why is Apache recommended over NGINX? Are there any specific reasons why?

What application are you using?
OJS 3.3.0-14

Additional information
My team is running OJS with NGINX and is considering switching to Apache since it is officially recommended.


I can’t speak for PKP when it comes to recommendations. Now as a member of a team that has maintained hundreds of journals on many OJS installations for years, I recommend not switching to Apache.

nginx is a more modern server and offers everything OJS needs. Alternatively, there are other modern servers such as Caddy Server that also work well with OJS.
