VPS Build


I've been having a test of running AlmaLinux and Litespeed for my own site here:


As it's running on a 2GB RAM VPS, the Litespeed licence is free. So rather than running the standard CentOS7 / nginx / php-fpm / MariaDB 10.3, I'm now running on the following:

AlmaLinux 8.4
MariaDB 10.5
Litespeed Enterprise 6.0.4
lsphp 8.0.7
elasticsearch 7.13

So far, all seems well. I've been running AlmaLinux for other things since it was in RC stage, but this is the first time I'm using it in production. I use Litespeed on all the shared hosting, but that is hooked into cPanel, where my AlmaLinux server doesn't have a control panel installed.
