Ok so here's the deal, i recently installed a mapbender. But i'm not sure whether i configured it correctly or not. so, how do i check if it's correctly installed/configured or not?

Both will be able to supply a WebMapService.
Use your mapserver for WMS 
 ... until you need a transactional Web Feature Service (WFS-T) which is not
supported by mapserver.
You will need WFS-T only for edit vectordata (write-access) via
Mapbender-Client, but not for your TIFs and not for any other read-access.

>From what i read, mapserver is faster for shapefile ....
Please ask this on mapserver-userlist.
This list intend to discuss absout Mapbender-Client only.

(Also your TIF-question is more a mapserver- but not a mapbender-problem.)

So you can put a gdaltindex on top.
Then insert this index into the mapfile instead of 50 single Tif-Files.
