  • Kewl. Thanks Boss.

  • That's really lean. Why not roll a pure nginx setup, though?

    Vanilla needs .htaccess and its a little bitch on pure nginx.

    It would be interesting to follow the correlation between RAM usage and the number of members / visits as the community grows.

    Edit: tks for sharing the specs.

    BF/CM - Buyer Beware. Conduct your own due diligence on the sustainability of the deals presented here as well as the provider's track record.

    This is useful information actually. I have been wondering how resources scale with community growth.

    Yes. I have data about WP, magento etc., but not about Vanilla. I would like to follow the evolution of processor & memory usage and, if possible, bandwidth.

    Not really an opinion on my part, but I thought maybe OpenLiteSpeed would be good for this now, supporting .htaccess and all ... (?) (I haven't run plain Apache for quite some years, used nginx for some years, and recently played with OpenLiteSpeed and Lighttpd.)

    Yeah maybe, although this seems to be doing well tbh on fairly limited resources, once things start to struggle I may use that opportunity to switch a few times and measure performance, my personal choice is usually lighttpd but felt a bit fruity when setting this up.

    I remember the time when I tried to use lighttpd with Vanilla on your recommendation.... I blame you for my lack of hair now :anguished:

    Sorry, but I did not want to be alone, being a human solar panel is no fun.

    I would've made it with a docker swarm cluster running both a mysql cluster and a replicated apache service. I would then have added 5 masters to be able to have 2 down and maintain a proper cluster and then 3 workers all running the mariadb and apache services.
    But that would probably be overkill 😂

  • Something tells me those specs may gradually increase ;)

  • How did you manage to cram everything in on a 5GB KVM? I wasn't even able to install ubuntu on it :(

    I always install via ISO, and the last time I tried, Ubuntu told me that the VM didn't meet the minimum system requirements :(
