I often see that Apache is used as a web server and also ruby on rails, php and so on is used. So all in all the most large social network companies using unix operating systems.
Because I want to develop also a small application (not which so huge amount of users hehe) I also want to know the best ways and what are the points I need to look for to get the best linux distribution for such an application.
Lets use twitter for an example. Why twitter ? Because its easy from the graphical user interface but it needs to process thousands of querys per second, cache them and so on.
So, please, can someone tell me whereon I need to pay attention in selecting the best linux distribution. Is there also often a customization in kernel ? And the last question: Mysql -> MyISAM or InnoDB ?
Thank you very very much!
Have a nice day.
