I'm the on-line editor of expo, Ball State University's student-run
magazine. We're reviving our Web site, and I've been thinking seriously
about running it off a FreeBSD-based server. However, I'm not sure what
kinds of system requirements I'll have.
The school has roughly 20,000 students and the magazine comes out once a
semester. If I were to guess, I'd say we'll be having 100 people on the
server at once on busy days, most of whom will be on campus. In addition
to articles, the server will probably offer a 10- to 15-minute video
and/or podcast to go with the cover story. Also, the server will also be
used as a mail server and file server, though file services will likely
only be needed for a couple of days each semester and E-mail accounts
will only be for staff to do things such as receive feedback on articles
and so forth.
What sorts of requirements would such a server need as far as processor,
RAM and HD are concerned, assuming it would be running on FreeBSD? Would
a machine with 512M of RAM, a 140G HD and 1.2GHz processor work?
That will probably be enough.
The Slackware site runs on a PIII 600 with 512MB RAM,
