comment host SSL version of website in another server
Well, all I can tell ou is that all incoming traffic on my companies (smaller) websites coems through a reverse proxy that is in a virtual machine (as is the web server) and we have no problemswith this.

I am not sure I agree that a simple TCP forwarding introduces "lots" of overhead. If I look at how much that stuff my low end routers do (processor wise) that sounds quite doable.

comment Choosing a Server Chassis based on Server Board's Requirements
I can't answer an off-topic question. I generally judge the watt consumption to planned load - the board MOSTLY is not the main consumer (more the discs - one reason I go this way is to have 26 to 72 disc on a rack case (2u, 4u) which no Tier 1 manufacturer supports. Use enough power for the planned load. Simple.

comment Choosing a Server Chassis based on Server Board's Requirements
Nice - and wrong. We self build. Small shop. Main components are always and only SuperMicro (and Adaptec for the raid controller). Cases, Boards. Getting them prefabbed is hard. But I see no compatibility issues when doing that.

comment Will an average PC run a 10 concurrent write intensive request with 50MB daily database server?
The last one is important. Given that SSD are 100 times faster or more than a hard disc, using a disc basically asks for the system to be slow.

comment iSCSI SAN RAID 10 Performance — Poor Read, Good Write
@mdpc Please get real. Ehernet will not skew results to a degree like this. One can argue whether 82MB are limit or not for even 1gigabit ethernet, but 4 MB(!) are so slow that a DSL line would be able to handle it. UNless the link is seriously overloaded it is comically low.

comment How to redirect or rewrite IIS site with port in URL to URL without port?
@LeeHarrison "The is nothing stopping you from running two HTTPS sites on the same IP" - except that single idiotig ting called reality. Unless you use a very modern OS (2008 is not) the host header is in the encrypted part of the payload. How do the two programs negotiate on such an outdated OS which one gets the connection without knowing which one is the target. Wildcards work, as does a more modern operating system.

comment Is it a best practice to install programs to Program Files?
OTOS if I buy software and it is written by people not smart enough to realize that there are standards and being as stupid as going to C directly - well, that is where "as best as common practice can be demanded by law unless agreed upon otherwise" and "gross neglect to read the documentation" come into play.

comment HIGH CPU usage by PHP on a VPS Magento Server
Also, please tell me where you think it is slow. I see load averages that indicate a not highly loaded system (1.12, 2.02 - all below 4 means cores are not really busy).

comment HIGH CPU usage by PHP on a VPS Magento Server
So your website runs under a user named "vpsadmin"? And you are not aware that PHP is generally - without a lot of tuning and accelerators - considered to be a like extremely - slow?

Actually it will not. Not PREALLOCATE without reconfiguration. Allocate yes, preallocate not. Minimum cache memory is not set by default.

@nickgowdy Which is totally irrelevant as the site rules do not say "except when you are working for a charity, then you can ask beginner questions here".

We generally do not handle "I have no clue, teach me the basics" questions on this site as per site rules. If you have no idea how to administrate a network, tell your client to hire someone or hire someone - or learn, but do not expect help no a site explicitly only for professionals that know what they are doing.
