    I will run mostly Joomla 3.4 on my server and i have Debian 7 as distro.

    Now i wonder what you would recommend and why:
    Apache or Nginx
    MySQL or MariaDB

    Thank you so much for the perfect Panel, i will contribute to the project by buying add ons when i get my server up and running.

    Nginx is a fast and nice webserver, but I wont recommend it to a beginner. If you are familar with Linux and webserevrs, then you should try nginx, if this is your first server, then it might be better to start with apache. The reason is that wordpress and its plugins come with ready to use .htaccess rules, so rewriting will work out of the box. For nginx you will ahve to convert them to nginx syntax (or find the right converted rules on the net).

    Regardind Mysql vs. mariadb I would go with MySQL for now if you dont need any special frunction from Mariadb. With Debian 8, you will get mariadb anyway, so better stay with the defaults of Debian 7 so you have less hassle later with updates.
