  • Once in a blue moon, I do, yes.

    That said, replace syslogd with syslog-ng, and replace apache2 with nginx.

    Memory issues solved.

    @Wintereise said: replace apache2 with nginx.

    I just found easier to config apache2 than nginx in terms of php. I'm lazy, I will only serve files for myself. Just look at the ram used ;)

    Don't configure nginx for php, use minstall ;)

    Easiest way out holds no shame. Only a fool purposely takes an additional step for no reason.
