I’ve been trying and testing all kinds of setups on DO for a while now but still can’t decide how to setup my server(s)…I’m sure you guys can guide me in a good direction…
I’m a webdesigner/developer who wants to provide web and mailhosting for his clients. Sites will be mainly wordpress.
Hope you guys can help me or guide me to some tutorials:
1: seperate server/droplet for wordpress and mail or one big? What droplet config should I use (for both)
2: Wordpress server: is nginx+php-fpm the best practice?
3: Should I use a control panel of any kind? Any recommendations (for mail and/or web)? Or is it manageable from command line only?
Further I would like to provide some kind of webmail and statistics/website as I would like to know how much any website uses for bandwith and system resources.
I have some experience in virtualmin and I find it interesting but I uses quite some resources (nginx + mail + ftp, 2 websites already went up to almost 500mb on a Ubuntu 12.04 x64 system)
Many more questions but we’ll start here… :)
