Do I need nginx if I'm okay with configurable-http-proxy?

I’m trying to follow the “ground up” instructions here, and I’m unclear as to the role of configurable-http-proxy vs nginx. If I’m okay with configurable-http-proxy, is there anything that I still need nginx for? With configurable-http-proxy, I can still use port 80 or 443 for SSL/TLS, correct? I’m not using docker or anything like that, just running on the bare server.

I don’t see why you’d need Nginx then. But you’re not going to be able to run any other web services on that server.
