Hello pablo, some light to your questions <br> <br>Are you going to be hosting an app, website, …, etc.? <br>—> I am going to host a heavy traffic set of classifieds sites <br> <br>Will MySQL suffice? Or will your apps, website(s), etc. require features that are not found on MySQL, but on other opensource databases? <br> <br>----> I will mainly be using MYSQL and all the data are write/read from/to Mysql and it is why Memcache is super important here <br> <br>Why are you choosing Apache over Nginx? and so on; and so on. <br> <br>-----> For now, choosing Apache over nginx because My actual Dedicated server was set up under Apache and the sites heavily depend on apache rewrite and moreover I do not yet have nginx knowledge <br> <br>What’s the objective? <br> <br>-----> the objective is to have good website with less load time possible <br> <br>Regrads <br>Jacques
