Hi guys,
I have a nice cpanel server working with apache mpm event and i want to install nginx as a reverse proxy to get performance advantages.
So i want use both nginx and apache, i don't want to replace apache.
Most of my websites are wordpress, joomla ,magento , etc

I have some questions:

what is the best apache mpm to work with nginx ?
what must i do with websites using cloudflare?
for installation it is better to use easyapache cpanel nginx or engintron?
what must i backup before installation?
in case of rollback can i get in trouble?
Must i hire an expert or can i do by myself ??? ( i use shell and whm but i don't have in-depth knowledge of nginx)

thank you very much

Hey there! We actually just recently updated our documentation to talk about setting up nginx with a reverse proxy. You can find details on that here:

It's important to note that the Nginx tools available through cPanel are still in the experimental phase, as outlined in that document. I would recommend reading through that page to see if that is work you are comfortable doing, or if you need the assistance of an admin - since this is still experimental software, our support is very limited, even if you run into issues.
