Suggest packages to use on my VPS
I have the following resources in my VPS :-
CPU Cores : 1
Guranteed Memory : 256 MB
Burst Memory : 512
Bandwith : 1000 gb
Now I am a little confused on choosing the correct softwares.
My Needs are the following :-
1. Only one domain needs to be hosted on this vps
2. There should be normal things like forums, support tickets, etc.
3. E-Mail Server
4. A few miscellaneous things.
5. FTP Server
6. The web site / Domain would have approximately 500 registered users only.
I am to decide on the packages i have to use such as web server, and everything else so that i don't cross the resource limits of my vps.
Taking everything in consideration of the stuff you are going to host, i can say now that VPS is going to run out of memory really quickly.
Try to bump that memory to 1gb or 2gb.
- Apache 2 (Needs to optimized)
- Nginx (Lightweight and easy on VPS)
- Lighttpd (Lightweight webserver)
- Php 5
I would go with Nginx.
- Amavisd-new (Spam and antivirus interface for MTA)
For mail, i would consider Google Apps. One less service to host and manage.
- Iptables (Firewall)
If you want to you can install ISPconfig 3 to have a nice interface for your services but if you only gonna host one domain than ISPConfig3 is maybe overkill.
Good luck :)
I completed everything under 100 MB ram usage :D
Under loads it would go say 2.5 times thats 250 MB well under my 512 MB burst-able limit :-)
Wait until you get some load on it, memory usage will rise since you got everything running on it .. trust me ;-)
I'd suggest using sftp instead of ftp if you're the only one (or only a few people) that will be going to use it.
Also, take damir's tip in consideration and use google apps to handle your e-mail, it will save you A LOT of hassle and less load/memory.
No FTP server installed on it . . .
Didnt see the need to it.
