[Dancer-users] factory recommendation for web server

I know there are more than one ways to do it, but I have stuck with 
Apache for three reasons --

- historically Apache has been the front-runner although it may not be 

- at least one of the programs I use utilizes CGI, and I am only 
familiar with Apache's CGI capabilities; and

- Apache comes installed by default on my computer, my server, and on 
most all shared web hosting services.

That said, I do have control of my own computer and my server (although 
no control of the shared service for at least one site). What is, if 
any, the recommended combination of web servers/proxy servers, etc. that 
are optimal for Dancer deployment?

The deployment guide does give information on many variations, but, if 
you, the master dancers, could choose any, what would you choose?

I see a lot of mention of Nginx and Starman, and am considering 
experimenting with those.

I want speed, ease of installation and configuration, detailed error 
(and access) logging, and extraction of maximum efficiency with Dancer.
