Help with creating a LEMP server for XF

    I want to set up a LEMP server specifically for XenForo.

    I'm using this guide as a starting point because it seems to cover the basics and installs the packages from repos that will be easy to keep updated. It includes the following:
    • PHP 5.5
    • Percona for mysql
    • Postfix (I'm planning on using exim instead)
    • Nginx
    While keeping things simple (and please try to explain in very simple terms) what would you change? I gather that APC should be there, how would this be added?. Should some of the other php options be changed?

    Thanks for the suggestion. :)

    Is it only for CentOS though? I have experience with ubuntu server and plan on sticking with it for now.

    APC does't work with PHP 5.5, so use the supplied ZendOpcache with PHP 5.5, and if you want to store sessions, use Memcached for the back end.

    Thank you for pointing this out.
    Is this something that needs to be configured in detail? Google took me back to the same site. Configuring this type of thing is not something I have experience with.

    The server is a single VPS with 1GB of ram.
