If you were configuring a new VPS for a WP website that hasn't launched yet, What technologies would you choose? (website specs below)
Targeting 50-60k hits /mo. and more The website is designed to categorize embedded YouTube videos using a chained select menu (1 query for multiple boxes). Using less than 5 "static" pages. I would like to keep the homepage fairly static so the server can cache it easier.
Starting with a Linode 512mb VPS, can scale up as needed.
What I have planned so far
After scouring the web, it seems that Apache with an Ngnix reverse proxy does not offer any benefits with unless you need Apache for cPanel, or are more comfortable with it (i'm not, just starting out).
(also using W3 Total cache in WP)
