Well after months of procrastinating, reading blog post after blog post along with much of nginx’s configuration wiki, and general anxiety about screwing it up; RamiMassoud.com is officially switched over to my new linode! The new server is running a LEMP stack (Linux, EngineX/NginX, MySQL, PHP) built on Debian. I’m hopeful that all I have learned in the years since I setup the old server, will make this one far more streamlined and rock solid.
If for no other reason than accountability’s sake, I should mention that I will be (further) documenting my experiences soon. That way when I have to do this all again, I can just re-read my own posts!
