JSE's Blog

Jonah's blog is here

Hello world!

- Posted in Uncategorized by

This is my first post! More to come someday. This blog is where I'll post... probably mostly linux stuff? Anything I feel like writing about, you'll find it here.

Cool part about this? I want to see how far I can push a Low End box (as if you call a blog nobody reads "pushing"). So...

This website is running on a lightweight blog platform called htmly. It's flat file based when it comes to storing data, so it's memory footprint is way smaller. I save a lot of resources that I would have used with something like wordpress.

I installed lighttpd web server, and php5. Setup a custom config in lighttpd that htmly suggests so you can't access the config directories and so that rewrite works. Server OS running Debian 8 on a BuyVM 128MB $15/yr Low End Box. I don't expect to get much traffic here so I figure this LEB will last me out a while. And hey.... for running a fully functional blog/CMS platform, this looks sexy:

Yeah that's right! 8MB of ram used total for the entire system and web server. Of course, it's idle, and it is openvz (so not all the processes a dedi would have and in turn very little ram usage) but still, take that apache! No way it would use such little memory even idle haha
