I apologize if this is super-obvious - and I have used the search but not
found anything directly relating to my questions - but we’ve been running
Lucee 4.5 on a VPS with 8 GB Ram on Windows Server, and would like use
Lucee 5 (with Mura CMS mainly) on two new Debian 8 64bit VPS units - one
for production, one for development - and have a couple of questions as to
how we should set up the servers so it runs smoothly:
- Is Debian 8 64bit a good choice, or are there strong reasons to use a
different Linux version (our VPS provider uses Debian mostly)?
- If Debian 8 is a good choice, what would you recommend in terms of
CPU cores / Server Ram / Disk space for running a production machine - for
let’s just assume ten to twenty relatively small websites (maximum 1000
visitors/day/website). Some image processing occurs when users upload an
image to Mura CMS (which resizes and crops it to a few different variants),
as well as some websites occassionally generating PDFs (2 to 30 pages).
- Apache 2 and MySQL 5.7 - are those the recommended / good options for
the above? Those we have experience with, NGINX and other DB less so.
- For a pure development VPS used via a VPN, what would you suggest as
a setup combination in terms of cores/RAM?
Thank a lot for your input & best regards from Sweden.
