I was wondering what is the fastest setup for a typical LAMP (or LANMP) application on DO. I'm rather underwhelmed by the performance of my Drupal (Pressflow) site running on Nginx on DO. I suspect it might be because of poor DB performance. Would I gain anything by using two $5 servers instead of my current single $10 server? That way I could distribute Nginx + PHP on one VPS and MariaDB on the other one.
Thanks for your help!
