PHP is a scripting language widely used for web development, with code processed on a web server through a PHP interpreter, implemented as a module, daemon, or CGI executable. Nginx lacks the default ability to handle dynamic web pages with PHP and requires specific additional plugins for this purpose. One such plugin is FPM (FastCGI Process Manager), an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation offering additional features, particularly advantageous for high-traffic sites. FPM stands out as the preferred method for PHP page processing with Nginx, surpassing traditional CGI-based methods in terms of speed.

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language geared towards web development. PHP code is usually processed on a web server by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module, a daemon or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable.

By default Nginx is not capable of processing dynamic web pages with PHP so it requires the use of specific additional plugins for this purpose. One of these plugins is FPM (FastCGI Process Manager). FPM is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features (mostly) useful for heavy-loaded sites. It is the preferred method of processing PHP pages with Nginx and is faster than traditional CGI based methods.

Hibernation was designed for laptops and might not be available for all PCs. It uses less power than sleep and when you start up the PC again, you're back to where you left off. Hibernation suspends to disk unlike the sleep option that suspends to RAM. That's why it takes a bit longer to wake up from hibernation than from sleep.

Rsync is a very flexible network-enabled syncing tool. Due to its ubiquity and its popularity as a tool for system scripts, it's included on most Linux distributions by default. It efficiently copies and sync files to or from a remote system. It’s faster than scp because rsync uses a remote-update protocol which allows transferring just the differences between two sets of files. The first time, it copies the whole content of a file or a directory from source to destination but from next time, it copies only the changed blocks and bytes to the destination.
