Building a Web Development Server Tags: Components Last response: May 14, 2011 7:22 AM in Components Share jiewmeng May 7, 2011 1:30:05 PM I am going to build a Development Web Server/Workstation. I am deciding on the hardware. I will be running - Ubuntu Linux - LAMP Stack (Apache/MySQL/PHP) - Node.js - Cloud9 IDE - Virtual Box with Virtual Machines, for testing etc Considerations: - Heat: Air Con on during Office Hours only - Power Efficiency - Performance So I think the most resource intensive is Virtual Machines. I am considering the below hardware - Intel Core i5 2400 - Asus H67 M Pro - Kingston PC3 10600/1333 CL9 2GB x 2 (4GB) - Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB - Cooler Master Elite 371 - Cooler Master GX550 - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - Cooler Master Blade Master 120 What are your comments on this build? Recommend something else? More about : building web development server ghnader hsmithot May 7, 2011 1:40:24 PM I saw your post in the ubuntu linux forums at another site. I am guessing the recommendations they gave you were not good enough? So may i ask you are you doing a workstation or more towards servers? jiewmeng May 14, 2011 7:22:43 AM ghnader hsmithot said:I saw your post in the ubuntu linux forums at another site.
