Is it possible to completely remove apache2 in favor of nginx? #1857

Hello guys,

I am more into nginx than apache2 and I use nginx on zentyal to access all the functionalities within and behind (proxy) Zentyal server 6. So there is a question while Zentyal have them both installed out of the box:

Is it possible to completely remove apache2 without ruining some functionalities of Zentyal Server?

I would really like to get rid of it because everytime I restart the server I have to
manually stop apache2
start nginx
start apache2 again because I am not sure it is not needed for something

Just to let you know: I use zentyal server as a gateway to my servers with a virtual host/proxies set up and an SSL offloading server (with LetsEncrypt). So Apache is completely useless for me, of course if it does not have any other functions...

I would like to know the options... if complete removal of apache2 would have no impact on the functionalities then I would vote for it and keep only nginx on the box. I may even try to contribute with nginx setup module (vhosts and proxy setup - maybe even with LetsEncrypt support) as this is the configuration I use at the time being.

What is your opinion?

Best regards

SOGo works with Apache 2.

Isn't it only working as a proxy for SOGo? I am running Nginx as a proxy for SOGo and it seems to be completely fine, though I am not 100% sure it may not have some quirks I just do not see...
