Can I use MEMP?

I am on the PHP development track and I wanted to know; if I use Nginx instead of Apache, will it cause any problems in future through out the track?

Just go for it and see. Surely if anything breaks later, you can just install MAMP and continue with the same project files!

No, I meant MEMP. In this case, 'E' stands for Nginx (EngineX).

So, if I choose to use Nginx instead of Apache as a web server, will it cause any problems in future through out the track?

If Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP is called LEMP, shouldn't My, Nginx, MySQL, PHP be called MEMP?
