Please keep in mind that Nginx is not natively supported. Our support team will not be able to troubleshoot issues directly related to it's usage, and if you are an inexperienced user, it's likely better to stick with Apache.
Just would liike to add you can get into troubles by installing this addon. Here is why :
-> even if you install mod_remoteip, you'll get to a point where you won't see the real ip in cPanel apache logs. The reason : nginxcp is a crappy software with bugs :P
-> they still distribute a vulnerable version of mod_rpaf with their software
-> you won't get a fresh nginx from the nginx website. You'll download your nginx from their website. What if their Wordpress is hacked???
-> i warned them about a security issue and a bug, they never bothered about replying :P
-> if you delete an addon domain, then it will also delete the main www record for your domain. why? because it's crap.
-> if you uninstall, you'll end up with no logs, or logs all in the same file. Your clients will still be disappointed unless you remove the ###### before the customlogs entried in the cPanel EasyApache templates.
Making Nginx works with cPanel should be VERY easy for cPanel peoples. I mean : if you can create Easyapache you can install nginx for sure
I see no reason, in 2014, to do not support this one natively.
Apache is no longer the best one IMHO it's nginx turn now
On our side, we are looking to switch over to ISPConfig on CloudLinux (yup, it works!), because they support nginx. We are working n it. I'm just sick and tired of having to rebuild apache once a week (sometimes more!)
Thank you for reading

Oh! and don't think you'll be able to use after_make_apache or something script to recover your logs after an easyapache build.
...seems like this software is not built to provide nginx, but to make life easier to hackers.
Please : cPanel, help your customer to be more secure, by adding nginx suppiort to cPanel
Our customers, and web hosts want it
Stop pushing us to use stuff like nginxcp, cpnginx (those are both the same sh**t)...
