    I currently have my site on a server that runs whm. I am Apache and Nginx running together via nginxadmin plugin. What would be the best way to setup SPDY. Do I download it for Apache or Nginx? I also use maxcdn as a cdn as well.

    This forum is mainly for Centmin Mod Nginx which is pure 100% Nginx web server with no proxying so not really intended for non-Centmin Mod setups :)

    But for your situation yes you'd need to setup SPDY SSL on Nginx which in fact is probably easier to do. But it would be left up to you to do as I don't think nginxadmin has SPDY module compiled for Nginx Module ngx_http_spdy_module

    So SPDY wouldn't be supported by nginxadmin unless you recompile nginxadmin.

    But maxcdn on SSL will be expensive, don't recall the costs for maxcdn SSL CDN e

    edit: okay seems maxcdn with custom SSL CDN is an extra $39/month = US$468/yr !

    How easy would it be to just dump whm so I could only use nginx? I already run mariadb and php-fpm.

    not that easy for whm, you better off setting up a new server without any control panel using CentOS 6.5 64bit and then install Centmin Mod Nginx if that's the route you want.

    If you want to remove WHM/Cpanel and switch to non-Centmin Mod Nginx/PHP-FPM, then don't think I'd be able to help you there as actually never done it before.
