Originally I just wanted some software to create image galleries for my web server that look a bit nicer than what I used to do
with thumbnail_image (cache)
... But then setting up a wiki to gather data from my rusty memory and some software to assemble bookmarks from my various browser installations were on my to-do list for quite some time now, and hey, everyone blogs nowadays ("me too", do you notice some theme
here?), and so I stumbled over TikiWiki (cache)
Before I used thttpd (cache)
as web server, which is really nice for static content, and while it's possible to compile php (cache)
for thttpd, it's not the ideal platform
. I tried apache2, but there are some strange problems with php4 and apache2 on OpenBSD, so now I'm back to apache1 (which works with mostly identical config). I didn't take into account the memory requirements of the apache/php combination - with a single user my 96MB RAM system was into swap up to the ears in no time. Oh yes, and I needed to install mysql, too...
As there's not too much to optimize in terms of memory usage for AMP stuff, I assembled all the FPM memory modules I had lying around somewhere and now have enough for about two concurrent users on the Tikiwiki pages...
More later :)
