nginx & Pyplate CMS

Last night while reading upon webservers (apache vs Nginx) and running a webserver on a Raspberry Pi (which i have at home) i found this website regarding rapsberry pi webservers which he runs on a cluster in his basement. Next to that he also have a cluster running on a Banana Pi (Chinese made Raspberry)

The writer/owner also made his own CMS (pyplate) in order to host static pages which makes Nginx really fast and stable while hosted in a cluster. I noticed this big online discussion on what is better, Apache or Nginx, but it all has its own benefits.

This made me decide not convert the VPS webserver to nginx but to keep it running apache and play around on the pi. After installing nginx a couple of weeks ago, i already had this basic html page running with a couple of shortcuts (here, my other blog, my owncloud) but after installing pyplate, did a quick look around and configured some pages (http://home.l4urenz.nl)
