I have a VPS with 1Gb RAM and equal share CPU. It is a managed server, but I prefer to do things myself if possible. The only site that will be running on it will be my lone forum.
What I would like to do is set up the server in such a way that it is balanced between security and performance (maybe even with a slight edge towards performance). I'd also like to just be able to do everything necessary via EasyApache because I don't have a lot of experience working with the command line at this time.
I'd also like to take advantage of xenForo's caching abilities as much as possible with the amount of RAM that I have to maybe decrease the page loading times (right now the page loads are already under 2 secs).
Right now I'm using Apache 2.2, PHP 5.4, fcgi, and SuExec.
If any of you would care to help me, please drop me a PM if there is any more information that you need.
