    hi all,

    ive just got a new 128mb vps which i'm using for a secondary name server.

    I have installed Debian 6 64bit minimal install (overkill for small ram but just to keep everything the same :D) and noticed upon first update it had apache2 installed.

    I have been using the create your own DNS tutorial:
    but just for adding to my existing server running ispconfig 3.

    What im wondering is, would i be ok to remove Apache from the name-server box without it messing anything up also what else would you recommend to remove or tune up?

    dont remove pache, just stop it so it does not use resources:

    /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
    update-rc.d -f apache2 remove

    128mb of ram is plenty for basic web, mail, etc. My first VPS was 32mb and over the years linode has upgraded me so I now have 1gb ram for my $20/mo. Transfer has gone from 200mb to 2tb, and cpu speed has gone up.

    But I still create LOTS of 32mb and 64mb servers in virtualbox to set up lab exercises for my students. They work fine.
