November 29, 2013 8k views
Hello! I will soon move my wordpress site to Digital Ocean, and after reading some tutorials, i have a doubt: I will install LAMP on Ubuntu Will it be fast and nice to install PHP FastCGI + APC + Memcache +Varnish then install W3total cache + DB cache reloaded fix plugins altogether. Is this too much cache? Will they get conflicted with each other? Will it rock? Thanks so much for your help!!!

If you want a WordPress site that rocks, dump Apache in favor of Nginx and check out How To Install Wordpress, Nginx, PHP, and Varnish on Ubuntu 12.04.

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator and a useful tool for speeding up a server, especially during a times when there is high traffic to a site. It works by redirecting visitors to static pages whenever possible and only drawing on the server itself if there is a need for an active process. This tutorial covers installing wordpress on a LEMP stack (with nginx instead of apache), and then installing varnish.
Installing Ngix just like the link you posted, then i won't need the fastcgi, apc stuff?

Actually im migrating the site using this link as my tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-wordpress-nginx-php-and-varnish-on-ubuntu-12-04

If i just isntall Ngix instead of Apache and continue folowing those instructions will i be fine?

The link Pablo posted should be enough to get your (super fast) Wordpress site up.
