Plesk vs. ISPConfig on a vServer
I'm renting a vServer on Hosteurope with 2GB RAM (4GB Burstable) and it's got Plesk 9 preinstalled.
I'm going to run a forum and gallery software on it which are probably going to require a fair amount of computer power. So I'm looking for a way to administer that server with a tool that has as small a memory-footprint as possible.
Having positive experiences with ISPConfig, I would like to switch to that. But what do you guys believe?
Or should I go for something else? Maybe not even Apache but lighttpd?
Basically my question is, how do I get the most out of my vServer? I don't even mind having no GUI if there is a how-to somewhere that I can use to set everything up.
- RootServer running ISPconfig 2 on Debian Lenny
- vServer running PLESK 8.4 on openSUSE 10.3
- vServer running PLESK 9 on Ubuntu
