Install a fresh webserver from the begin, with a Web Admin to view, control, and monitor the server.
Configure and optimize and install SSL certificates, mysql, phpmyadmin, nginx, varnish, mail server, ftp server, memcache, apc and php for the best performance and security possible on an open source plataform. If you have any other sugestions then great! I want to use the most current versions of all these software platforms.
Install NGINX+PHP+APC+MEMCACHE on a Apache. Also I want to install Varnish in the frontend of NGINX. Also wish post installation like to see the benchmark. Also Let me know if putting Apache on the backend is ok. I need to keep features like .htaccess.
All static content will be served with nginx but directly from the varnish cache, if a visitor has no login session cookie then nginx will serve the page cache from Varnish, if a user does have a login session cookie Varnish will proxy the request back to NGINX. Configue Both static & database files caching.
I will be using this server to host some domains with Magento Store Script ([url removed, login to view]), also our most important website ([url removed, login to view])
I plan a static domain just to server images/css in a ramdrive. (we have 16gb of memory)(I plan use this domain to server static for all others ones)
Configure the server to load pages less than .7 sec (magento script).
I can pay extra reward if this runs less than .5 sec.
I want the fast load Magento Store possible.
we get a Dell 1950-III server with this features and will be at co-location:
- 2 X xeon quadcore 2,66
- 16 gb
- 1 x SSD Crucial 256 GB (sata)
- 4 X SAS 146GB with raid controler with 512mb cache
