My trusty old “manually installed” LEMP stack on a $5 14.04 x32 Ubuntu droplet has served me very well over the last year - 5 sites (phpbb, Wordpress etc) are running happily, response times excellent, CPU around 30%, memory around 80%, swap around 50% of 1GB.
All good. But so much has changed with things like Docker now, and I’m just a bit mind-boggled for choice.
I know there are multiple options open to me (excluding application droplets until they get on board with 15.04). But if you were to want to install a small, fast, light 5-site droplet (with separate users/pools), where would YOU start, and why?
