I have created a simple pastebin in Ruby on Rails and Python. I want to host it in an intranet and it will have like about 1000 users. I want to use one Apache server with a cluster of Mongrel servers. The server itself is a 2 GHz Intel Centrino with 2 GB RAM.
What do you think is the best OS to host this? I thought about Damn Small Linux or a custom LFS system. Ubuntu servers come with loads of stuff I don't need. Maybe there are some better OSes?
It must be capable of:
- Running Apache
- Running Ruby
- Running Python
- Running Mongrel with Ruby on Rails
- Running MySQL
Can anyone reccomend me one? Thanks.
PS: I am not going to run Windows Server or Mac OS X Server (Mac's are expensive).
