1.1. Nginx integration mode
In this mode, Phusion Passenger integrates directly into Nginx as an Nginx module. You operate Phusion Passenger mostly through Nginx and through Nginx configuration files. The Nginx integration mode is, along with the Standalone mode, highly optimized for performance.
1.2. Apache integration mode
In this mode, Phusion Passenger integrates directly into Apache as an Apache module. You operate Phusion Passenger mostly through Apache and through Apache configuration files.
1.3. Standalone mode
In this mode, Phusion Passenger operates as a fully-featured, secure standalone HTTP server. You do not need to have an existing web server like Apache or Nginx. This mode is ideal…
…if you are not familiar with Apache or Nginx
…when you want to quickly start up a server without editing configuration files (e.g. during development)
…or when you want to decouple the web server from the application server, by setting up reverse proxies.
Along with the Nginx mode, the Standalone mode is highly optimized for performance.
