I am wondering what your favorite build is for a new dynamic website (of unknown traffic especially)?
After scouring the web, it seems that Apache with an Ngnix reverse proxy does not offer any benefits with unless you need Apache for cPanel, or are more comfortable with it (i'm not, just starting out).
My current config in mind
Linode 512mb VPS, can scale up as needed.
Ubuntu 10.04 (most comfortable with that)
X-Cache or APC
I would love to hear what your build would be!
