Hi there I am going to make 2 Webserver at my work going to handle 50 mil hits per month... They are using Linux already. But being a FreeBSD fan, I have proposed FreeBSD to my Boss convincing him that FreeBSD is more Fast and Secure solution for his needs... And now I want to show the results... *Hardware:* Dell PowerEdge 2950 III having 2 x CPU 3,0 GHz Intel Xeon L5450 Quad-Core 2x6MB cache WITH 16 GB RAM.
*Tools:* 1. FreeBSD 7 Production Release 2. Apache 2.2.9 3. MySQL 5.1.26 4. PHP 5.2.6 My question is, "*To get the speed, performance and security*": Should I use Ports or Packages to install all these tools One by One? *OR* Should I use TAR files and compile them manually. For example giving command line arguments and commands like ./configure --prefix=/www --enable-module=so make make install cd ../php-xxx ./configure --with-mysql --with-apxs=/www/bin/apxs make make install etc.... I have googled but still haven't reached to solution...personally I would prefer comiling them with command line arguments but then I seek some help from you guys i.e. How should I write this ./configure......stuff in FreeBSD and what would be the best options combination, I must choose to get the speed, performane and security in Apache, MySQL and PHP? Any suggestion is very welcomed! -- Thanks!
