Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.
Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.
The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172
How to try this feature:
Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.
We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

Only Nginx without Apache. Optional PHP-FPM. Would be nice if headers-and-more module would be present in Nginx.
