Best Linux for Email+LEMP

Posted August 28, 2013 3.6k views
I would like to know what's the best Linux for a 512MB or 1GB droplet? I need to run a LEMP with 4-5 sites, DNS Server (Bind), an RESTful API, Node.js and a Zimbra server... It's for my business!

If I recall correctly, Zimbra requires at least 2GB RAM to function properly. You'd need more memory for the other programs such as nginx, MySQL, php5-fpm, DNS, and Nodejs.

I recommend going with Ubuntu Server as it's generally easier to use on a 4GB droplet.
