My team and I plan on releasing our Rails startup soon, but we’re not
sure which server to use. Nginx? Litespeed? Apache? We’re going to use
SliceHost (a 512MB slice) if that helps.
I’ve played around with Litespeed, and it’s nice not having to deal
with any mongrel clusters, etc. Apache is what I use on my personal
computer, so I feel comfortable and have the most experience with
that. And with the release of mod_rails, it’s really tempting to use
Apache. (Never used nginx before.)
So, what do you guys think would be the best one to handle massive
load (e.g.: the “digg effect”) (probably wishful thinking, but it’s
better to be safe than sorry) when dealing with 512MB. Or should we go
for the 1024MB slice?
