comment How much memory should be allocated to memcache?
Hyperic will keep track of them and give you nice pretty graphs. If you just want to see stats, there is always code.sixapart.com/svn/memcached/trunk/server/scripts/…

comment cluster suite rhel
I had not even gotten to the point of dealing with fencing - we're talking about just joining 3 machines to the same cluster...a process that should require about 10 minutes of time. It fails almost every time. Regardless, I have found pacemaker to be a more robust solution (1. it works, 2. it is as or more flexible) so am not really worried about RHCS anymore.

comment Mac OS 10.4 - how to use custom Apache 2 install instead of Apache 1.3?
You can build Apache from source or install MAMP or something...or you could just spend $29 on Snow Leopard.

You also need to recompile PHP to be thread safe if you use Apache mpm_worker.

comment nginx vs lighttpd for wordpress
Just curious, why have you excluded Apache? nginx and lighttpd have gotten a lot of press recently for their ability to serve static content, but Apache is really the standard for serving PHP applications. I'd focus more on which PHP caching engine to use (eAccelerator, for example) and which Wordpress caching module to use (i.e. wp-supercache). edit: I see that others have already brought up all these points below.

comment Mono on Linux: Apache or Nginx
Oh, absolutely - C will be faster than almost anything. Of course, your webapp will likely be plagued with all sorts of exploits, buffer overrun problems, and not particularly maintainable, but who needs to worry about those things these days. (I was a C/C++ developer for several years...thankfully I left those days behind)

comment Mono on Linux: Apache or Nginx
That's not really a proof of anything, Tync since it doesn't look like it tests things a web application would actually do. Mandelbrot sets? How about generating pages from a common database. I'm not in love with PHP, but looking at that thing, they'd have you believe that it is 3 orders of magnitude slower than Java at all tasks, which is quite obviously false. I do believe that calculating Mandelbrot sets and SpectralNorms is weak on PHP and Ruby, since they are not designed to do those type of things. PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python, are optimized for string manipulation, not calculation.
