    We support Apache and nginx quite easily, but have done no testing with lighttpd. We use nginx internally on vanillaforums.com to great effect, and prefer it to Apache by a large margin. One of the benefits of nginx is that it uses bare nginx threads to server static content and only uses PHP to deal with actual php files.

    nginx is the scalable solution, but for starting out apache is sufficient. Read this:
