Support » Installing WordPress » Setting up a web server for wordpress installations

  • Hey guys, so I do website design and host websites I do for clients. So does anyone have any experience as to what would be the best set up for a collection of wordpress sites? Eg. PHP and apache extensions to use and where others are not needed and should be left out, best mysql configuration, etc.

  • I’m assuming you’re talking about actually hosting your clients sites. I would never recommend that unless you have an actual datacenter and CDN network. There is much more to hosting than setting up a Linux box. If you just want to “host” your clients you would be much better off renting a dedicated server or looking into a reseller account with a reputable host.

    Thanks for the reply Keith. As I said, I already host WordPress sites for clients. I currently have a cloud hosting package with a reputable host in my country so that I at least don’t have to deal with the hardware 🙂

    I’ve read the requirements before but still doesn’t hurt seeing them again thanks. What I’m looking for is what is recommended and suggested on a web server. Tips and advice I’d say. I’m not quite a top notch system admin but wouldn’t say fresh either.

    An example would be to add some magical lines to modsec then one doesn’t need wordfence or making use of memcached module or PHP FPM will greatly speed up WordPress, etc.

    Thank you though for the link and mention of CDN though, I didn’t think of that. Don’t really know how to either so now I have homework 😀
