Or alternatively run PHP as fastcgi/fpm module under Apache. It's maybe not 
that fast as NGINX but performs decently enough with similar added security 
aspect (and you can run apache and php threaded without signal 11's then as 
well). In addition it has additional advantage of not having to adapt 
complex .htaccess scripts into NGINX config file format.
