Fugu – Server admin

Posted under: Server admin

In 2017 we moved the website to a new server environment in which i took care of the server setup and maintain the infrastructure since then. The setup is based on a Linux Ubuntu with a Nginx proxy server for proxy caching and asset delivery and a Apache2 Server behind the proxy that serves the PHP pages that run on a PHP FPM 7.1 with opcache and memcache. This setup can take over 10.000 concurrent requests on a 8-core, 12 GB RAM system. I usually do not take server admin jobs since its not of my core skills but this time i was interested because it required a high level of fine tuning between nginx and apache2 to achive the fast loading website i ever worked for.
