This tutorial shows how you can install and run Magento on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Magento is an open-source, feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Magento Community Edition here which is licensed under an open source certified license (OSL v3.0 ). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
