I´m building 6 sites in wordpress:
- A small local newspaper
- A local magazina
- A places directory
- A simple blog
- A buddypress comunity
I want to optimize my sites all that i can without losing a lot of the features.
I was thinking about getting a dedicated server to serve them.
I estimate that i´m going to have around 40.000 unique visitor and around a 400.000 pageviews/month in total (all sites, not on a site).
Will this server do?
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Dual Core
RAM4 GB DDR2Hard disc2 x 400 GB SATA II
I don´t know if there is some sort of calculation i could do to figure this out.
I can post here a more specific details about my sites performance in terms of queries:
