Setting up a new Linode.
Can you please advise on the best set up. I had my Old linode built for me, but its about time I learnt to do my own. My old setup was centos 07, With Lightspeed, php and mysql.
Can you advise on best setup for a Newbie to use please ??
I run Wordpress websites (3) and 3 xenforo forums.
Never heard about lightspeed (unless you refer to 299792458 meters per second).
You probably mean litespeed (which seems to be a proprietary apache-compatible web server, according to Wikipedia).
(Never heard about this one either).
Simple question: Do you really really need Apache compatibility just to run PHP?
If not, I would consider nginx instead.
