For my work, I need to set up an event website. The site will be up to 2 or 3 months during the campaign.
The site needs to be stable and have high availability, especially during the rush hours.
The site will probably not make use of server side scripts or databases, but it will contain animated flash content.
The visitors will come on the website directly by typing the url (from printed ads) and from web ads on high traffic websites (journals).
- How do you handle this kind of set up?
- How do you estimate the traffic?
- How do you use this estimation to set up apache and which options will vary?
- Is there something else I need to think about?
I've some basic skills with apache confs, but I never had to set up such website. Btw, I am a programmer not a sysadmin.
