WordPress + Lighttpd on Webuzo

Lighttpd Web ServerWordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

Lighttpd Web ServerA single WordPress consumes all the memory on a VPS as in and poorly managed Apache Setup. For this reason WordPress can be deployed easily using Lighttpd. With “lighty” the WordPress installation on a VPS works like a charm. Running multiple sites on a single VPS with just 1 GB RAM, what more can you expect from “Lighty”.

Lighttpd does not use a .htaccess file like Apache does, so you can consider writing your own rewrite rules and include them into the Lighttpd configuration and load all the necessary module to suit the requirements for the site. Webuzo Lighttpd Setup is pre-loaded to have WordPress up and running thus fulfilling the basic requirements.

Webuzo Application Manager provides the complete package to setup the LLMP (Linux, Lighttpd, MySQL and PHP ) Stack and WordPress just by a click of a button. The default installation of Webuzo serves Apache as the default Webserver.

Quick guide to have LLMP setup by default.

Click Install – WordPress + NGINX on Webuzo

Nginx will do little for your WordPress-based website’s performance. WordPress development is intertwined with the Apache world, and as a result, support for Nginx-based setups is limited; but it is growing.

Nginx works perfectly well with a wide variety of applications, and WordPress is certainly one of them. NginX’s configuration language is very powerful and straightforward if one is familiar with it, but often people coming from other servers are not sure how things work in NginX and just copy and paste whatever they see from a blog that seems to fill their needs.
