    hey i have a ubuntu 8.1 server with ispconfig fully setup but one of my sites is slowing the whole server down (very popular site) and wanted to know can i run nginx/lighthttpd with an ispconfig setup along with apache?

    i also have other sites on this server and only want to use one with nginx/lighthttpd without causing harm to the others can it be done? is it easy?

    On a server you can run only one daemon on a specific port and IP address. Generally it is possible to run 2 different http servers on one system, as long as you have at least two IP addresses and configure apache to liste only on one IP address and lighty / nginx to listen on the other IP address.

    same question

    Hello everyone,

    First of all I love howtoforge the way it helps everyone with its tutorials.

    i have something similar to ask i installed centOS 5.3 x64 with ispconfig 3. and i find it difficult to add dns in it its not like old isp2

    also i have problem with sub domains ,,,,

    but the main question is my server configuration is good enough to handle atleast 1000 users at a time.

    its athalon x2 with 2 GB ram and Raid 1

    but now my memory uses is always full even with 20 users online.

    can i install nginx to serve static content ?

    and if yes, then how can i do it,

    please elaborate, waiting to hear from you .

    thats ok as most of the memory is used for file caching by the linux kernel. This does not mean that you can not add more websites. Apache server is able to handle thousand users on your setup without any problems.


    By the way, if you bump a thread, nobody will answer it ;)
