Stack is kept as simple as possible.  Only notable things I can say is:

- Apache used as a proxy *:80 <-> localhost:xxx
- Redis is configured to never write any data to disk.
- The application running the site itself is self-contained
(https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/gdcproject)
- I have a separate (unprivileged) system account on the server to run
the application.
- Server is a Linode 2GB VM (https://www.linode.com/pricing)

Iain.
