I am in the progress of setting up two sites for a school on the same, new, ubuntu virtual server.
One site will be just for 'documentation': Basically only a few users (3-4) will be working on writing and editing (long) pages.
There will be almost no other visitors ( basically only Editors ), so what counts here that editing pages does not feel 'sluggish'.
The other will have content added, just a few pages a day, and almost no updates to content already added, except for two content types which 'automatically' gets updated every night at about 1 o clock.
Maximum visitors will be 100-200 at the same time, but this could increase a lot in the near feature (= next year if other schools are interested in the project)
I currently have 4GB ubuntu 16, apache in front, mod cache / mod cache disk (and webmin) installed.
Advice would be welcome.
For example: is there any point in setting up for example varnish for the site that is only for a few users? Is it better than just using mod cache in apache. Will this run as 'nice' as standalone since it will only have a few users at the time.
