Which Linux dist to run lucee?

Hi,
which Linux distro and Webserver do you recommend to run lucee in production?
It will be in a vps wit 1 Côte and 2 gig ram.
Ia ubuntu with nginx the right choice for a Linux noob?
Database will be for now SQL Server in another box.
Cheers Thorsten

We use Ubuntu 14.04 in production and it works great. Super stable and
probably the easiest distro to use + get help on should you get stuck.

I’d go with CentOS and Nginx. CentOS because it’s a free distribution of
RedHat, hence probably the best choice for production environments where
stability is more important than innovation. And Nginx because I like the
ease with which it can be configured.

also, Ubuntu is known to be a memory hog, and with 2GB of RAM you’d be
cutting it close.

nginx is definitely a fine choice and my personal favorite. you can run
it on Windows and get familiarized with it prior to moving to Linux
which might make your transition a little easier.

I suggest CentOS to most folks who have everyday needs, and RHEL to those
who extra level of support afforded with a commercial product. Both are
stable, secure, and are well documented.

Ubuntu, is bleeding edge. Its performance is lack luster, its configuration
is anything but standard and security issues abound.

As for a web server, Apache is rock solid. The only reasons to go with
lighthttpd or nginx is if performance is desired over features.

+1 for CentOS or if your using AWS I would suggest Amazon Linux, which is
another Redhat flavour (I think)…

Kind regards,

Andrew

And Nginx is much better with a low-memory system than Apache. Not even close.> On Jun 5, 2015, at 4:21 PM, Robert Munn <@Robert_Munn> wrote:

If you go with Ubuntu, I might suggest 12.04 LTS in production rather than 14.04 LTS. See the reasons here:

You can mitigate some of these issues, but 14.04 leaves you with a kernel that is going to be unsupported upstream. No bueno.

If you prefer a less bleeding edge distro you can try Debian.

You could also try FreeBSD, though config might take a bit more doing than other distros:

CentOS is the only Linux OS I have set up Railo on - have not done so with
Lucee, but only because I no longer use that particular box. I used CentOS
6.x previously, but I do have a CentOS 7 vm that I occasionally use, and
some of my complaints about 6 have been addressed. I am also not a Linux
guy - almost everything I have ever done was done on MS products, but
CentOS made life easy. I’m trying to branch out. About a year ago I went
full on Apple at home, and I have learned a lot making that switch. Since I
do quite a bit of sys admin in a MS environment at work, my primary
computer is Windows based. I have a mac at work for development / whatever
else I want to use for. I need to set up a web server at home, and I may go
back to CentOS for this.On Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 9:01:50 AM UTC-5, thorste...@googlemail.com wrote:

For Linux, the one you (or the people you would turn to for support, like
the people selling you the VPS) know most about.

For webserver I think Apache has more documentation and mindshare and the
option to use AJP next to HTTP forwarding is something I like a lot.
However, I have found setting up Websockets to run on the same port as your
website runs much easier with Nginx and Tomcat than with Apache and Tomcat.
But that is only if you plan to use websockets on the same port.
