The following method will get you started fast on Ubuntu 12.04;
sudo apt-get install php5-common php5-cli php5-fpm
sudo apt-get install nginx
sudo service nginx start
Test that it's working (should see "Welcome to nginx!")
sudo service nginx stop
In your nginx site configuration (/etc/nginx/sites-available/default), uncomment the lines in the server {} section starting with
listen for ipv4 / ipv6 both.
scroll down to where it says "location ~ .php {" and uncomment lines so it looks like this:
location ~ \.php$ {
  fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$
  fastcgi_index index.php;
  include fastcgi_params;
sudo service php5-fpm restart sudo service nginx restart
Your default web root is located at /usr/share/nginx/www (per the config file). (See root /usr/share/nginx/www;
(Note1: For Ubuntu 12.10 or newer, you will need to replace the fastcgi_pass; line with this to make it work: fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;)
Note2:  remember to include "index.php" as follows: 
index index.html index.htm index.php;
