I am a new TKL user, a software architect and a previous shared hosting / dedicated hosting user, giving drupal and wordpress development services. While amazed by the performance, I find it hard to decide about the best configuration, and the number of servers needed.
Currently, I need to make the following decisions:
1. Add an SVN package to my existing appliance, or create a new appliance dedicated for SVN?
While amazed by the number of pricing options, I find it hard to find the price of a new appliance vs. the difficulty to configure SVN on an existing server.
2. Can I put all of my small websites on one appliance? Or should I move each one to a new appliance for security reasons? (I find it hard to configure users which have FTP access but not root access - even thought I use webmin to define them, and add them to the www-data and ssh groups, I get permission denied error when they try to login).
3. If I put all of my websites on one appliance, should I install multiple websites ? or use OpenVZ optimized builds? Will the micro server be enough for OpenVZ ?
Thanks in advance,
