Look like I’m a bit lost in here with which version of Debian 7 I should go for…
There are four packages from Debian;[ squeeze ] [ wheezy ] [ jessie ] [ sid ]
when I start creating a new droplet and choose Debian 64x as Linux Distributions for my server, I see only Debian wheezy as standard version. And my question is do I have to stick with version because it is safe or I still have a choice to go for the other versions??
The other thing about that is when I use Apache on Debian wheezy and compare it to Apache on Debian Sid or Jessie, they are totally different in many ways. In addition to that, Apache from Debian Sid or Jessie is not compatible with Nginx 1.4.4 or 1.4.5 since Nignx reverse proxy doesn’t work with Apache…
I noticed Nginx version on Debian wheezy is still old “1.2.1” not as good as the new one “1.4.5”.
Besides, php5 on Debain wheezy is also old “php5.4” and missing a lot of good features like php5-xcache v3.1 and Zend OpCache + Optimizer…
I want your advice about that.
