A New Stack: LVCMP

Going to go over installing a different web stack than LAMP.

- Installing Varnish, a website accelerator
- Installing Cherokee, a faster, lighter Apache
- Installing MariaDB, MySQL on Steroids
- Installing PHP5 CGI, Plain old PHP
- Sample configuration for Drupal

Going to go over installing a reverse proxy (Varnish) for serving static assets, using a web server BESIDES Apache, using MariaDB, a drop-in replacement for MySQL and php's fast cgi stuff for Cherokee.

Using a reverse proxy like Varnish or even nginx can enhance site performance by over 80% because they are designed to serve static files much more efficiently than Apache can.

    Sorry to delay the meetup again, but I'm fighting with something, probably pneumonia or bronchitis, and I don't think Thursday night's going to work out.

      I tentatively pushed it back one more week because of this. Sorry for the inconvenience to everyone.

    Very interesting. My manager brought me a printout of a better Magento Stack and it shows some stats using nginx, varnish and APC being 10x faster. (Varnish + Magento being 250x). I recently read that Apache was never really meant for dynamic sites, whereas nginx was built with dynamic sites as it's focus. I'm just regurgitating what I've read. I really have no idea. haha.

    Everyone, I need to change the date to one week later. I'll be out of the Country that week, so it won't work too well to have a meetup.. :)

      After benchmarking, I was a little disappointed with performance, but aside from that, it's pretty awesome to be flying without apache or mysql and using a reverse proxy.
