Setup Website Through Runcloud or Manual

Hi Guys,

I want to host a simple WordPress website which with time may get a little bulkier given I will be adding blogposts regularly. I want to know if setting up website with Runcloud stays well optimized when compared to manually doing it using LAMP.

Hey there,

This is a great question. There's two things to consider when decided if you want to use RunCloud or do your own LAMP Stack to create your website.

  1. The first is that using RoundCloud is easy to deploy and make configuration changes for you. If you are not familiar with maintaining a webserver this makes getting started simple. RunCloud also does almost everything for you. It makes system administration extremely easy as well. RunCloud is designed for point and click deployment and is easy to use.

  2. If your website grows. Creating high availability configurations may become difficult. You may also have problems if you need to do something that RunCloud does not support. Versus creating your own LAMP Stack which may be difficult to deploy but in the end you maintain control.

You need to weigh the pros and cons of what you are trying to do. If you are creating a simple website that you don't expect to grow too large RunCloud is the way to go. If you want to have total control of your server spinning up a LAMP Stack may be the way to go.

The last thing to consider is that using a LAMP Stack also depends on how comfortable you are with the command line. If your're not comfortable with the command line then RunCloud is the way to go.

Thank you and sorry for not being able to appreciate such an amazing response. I think I will stick with Runcloud for now given it's a basic website made for a limited skill set.
