My question is, is there any optimization I should do now before I get the first install going? I've normally just installed with default settings on the server (php/mysql/etc), but would like to start off as good as I can right now due to the small size of the server.
So...any advice on things that should be optimized right from the start of a new board?
I'm running apache with varnish/nginx (installed ApacheBooster...so whatever those default settings are is what I'm using).
I've normally just run things of managed servers (which this is as well), but I'd like to optimize things for xenforo as much as I can and learn it myself rather than having the tech guys do it for me. If you need to see any stats/files from the server, please let me know and I'll post up what I can. Any help/advice is much appreciated!
