Help with LEMP and OPCACHE
I am new to setting up a server. I have no experience using Linus/Ubantu etc. I have putty and no idea how to use. Right now I have 2 VPS accounts at 2 different hosting firms. I am fed up of slow answers and slow resolutions.
I would like to chat with someone who can guide or help me set up a server for me. I am not even sure if this is ideal for me. It does sound nice to have your own server working the way you want it to.
Is there someone out there who might be willing to help me? I am also visually impaired that is another reason I need some help in an area I know very little about.
What I need:
My application is a web service, I am using LAMP right now and my research says LEMP might be faster and better???
I use ftp to manage my project on my servers right now. I use cPanel/WHM provided to manage my Database (MySQL) and some other tasks. I just managed to get my provider to finally get opcache working (it took 5 days). That brought my response time down to 0.2 sec. from 0.3x sec.
Is it difficult to setup something that would work for me? Do I have to manage my own firewall/security? Is there a free/cheap alternative to cPane;/WHM for people like me who prefer a gui to manage simple tasks?
