My friends and i are getting our new business off the ground. I'm enjoying building with and learning more about Drupal, but i'm not a systems admin (and never will be).
We're looking to contract a systems admin to help us configure our server in such a way that we'll have to touch it minimally. We have a few key goals in mind:Read more
I am working on a site for our company that plans to receive a moderate amount of authenticated users. I feel that shared hosting is not an option and I need to setup a VPS, version control workflow that will allow us to develop, stage and deploy the site (and future sites). I am currently the only web developer at our company, but I would like to setup an infrastructure that would allow us to hire more staff and possibly collaborate with other developers on larger projects.Read more
Jag håller som bäst på och sätter upp en VPS-server med Ubuntu 10.04 LTS samt tänkte installera drupal 7 på densamma.
Jag tror jag har lyckats med det mesta vad gäller inställningar och annat, apache, mysql och så vidare. Problemet ligger i att jag ej kan installera, på grund av någon inställning i PHP.
PHP extensions Disabled
Drupal requires you to enable the PHP extensions in the following list (see the system requirements page for more information):

Jag sitter just nu och letar efter ett bra och prisvärt hostingalternativ för en ny drupalsite jag ska sätta upp. Det ska bli lite av en community, med profilfunktioner, "se mig på kartan", forum, organiska grupper med mera.
Jag tittar just nu på två intressanta alternativ:
Manufrog - shared hosting - ~250 MB PHP-minne enligt supporten, mellan 150 och 450 kronor per år för lite olika utrymmen och trafik.
Glesys - Cloud VPS - skalbart - 256 MB PHP-minne, cirka 100 - 120 kronor i månaden.
Vad säger ni om detta?Read more
Aside from being a developer, I also am in charge of managing the web server for our company. The "server" in this case is actually a relatively cheap VPS hosting account - US$30 a month. Currently, it hosts over fifty Drupal sites in a multisite configuration, and it's pretty dang performant, if I say so myself; responding faster than most shared hosting services, and most sites on it easily score 90 or higher on YSlow (with points mostly taken off for not hosting images and stuff on a CDN). I'll share some of the things I've discovered working on this server, and hopefully others can offer their tips as well.Read more
I am in the market for a VPS in the $15-$30/mth range, and I've been shopping it around with the help of some feedback I've received from the WebHostingTalk forums. So I came up with a few new benchmarking tests that I haven't seen mentioned before. The results of my benchmarks can be found here: HTML format and Spreadsheet format
- time drush generate users 2000 - This test will give you the amount of time it took to create 2000 users on your drupal site
- time drush generate content 5000 2 - This test will give you the amount of time it took to create 5000 nodes (page,story,book,blog,forum) with 7500 comments
- time drush generate taxonomy 15 250 - This test will give you the amount of time it took to create 15 vocabulary with 250 terms
I'm looking for commercial hosting options for a Drupal site, and would appreciate some guidance on how much server power I might need. My experience so far is in developing relatively low-traffic sites. I'm also not an expert by any means in Linux server admin.Read more
Just a heads up; as we move towards more and more stable builds of the Mercury stack, we are starting to look at deploying it on other infrastructure besides EC2. This week, we set it up and tuned for a modest (512MB of ram) VPS. These tests were successful. We were able to simulate a mix of non-cached traffic along side the simple ApacheBench battering, and the system held up well, even without gigabytes of ram to support it.Read more
NOTE: this is an old thread, with now outdated information regarding using Nginx with Aegir. While as a standalone Nginx configuration it may still work fine, it was greatly improved in the meantime and now Nginx is natively supported in Aegir, no more hacks/patches etc. You can install (and upgrade) Aegir based on Nginx, with all enhancements thanks to available now Barracuda & Octopus installers, hosted on GitHub and Gitorious: https://github.com/omega8cc/nginx-for-drupal and http://gitorious.org/aegir/barracuda-octopus.
The shortest answer is: YES.Read more
