Building a small server

This is a VPS with only 128Mbyte RAM and a 500 MHz processor (!) It’s tricky to configure it.

I may get around to documenting how I installed Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit, to save RAM), installed the WordPress, then tweaked the system to remove as much cruft as possible. I also minimized the number of Apache processes, since I never expect more than a couple people to use the blog at the same time.

Yeah. And I also installed webmin to make it easier to administer.

Of course, the real reason I set up this server was so that I could play with IPv6. The name of the server is, after all, ipv6-richb.com. I’ll probably write about that later.
