    Web Server

    Hi I run raveskool.com
    Recently in the last week my hosting provider deleted my ecommerce folder for containing files construe to be archiving and in the TOA it says archiving of files is not permitted on our servers .
    Point being I thought I would build a Linux web server .
    After researching I decided on Ubuntu 12. And apache2. Used an old 1.2 desktop and set it up for a trial run after 30 hours I had it running stable and serving my site.
    With this I brought a server configured a 1tb raid0 and repeated the process (A LOT MORE DIFFICULT THIS TIME I MIGHT ADD) Again I hit the forums sorted all the problems out have it running at moment stable 32 hours.
    What I cannot understand is the speed of files being downloaded now I have not tested download speed on this yet I thought I would ask if there’s some script I need to use to speed up the process or is it down to my fiber optic connect and what is the maximum download speed a home server can hope to achieve, that is outside world downloading from my server.

    kind regards

    Re: Web Server

    Welcome to the Forums! Hopefully I can answer your question and its easy to understand.

    Speed Questions

    The maximum upload speed of your home server is dependent on the service agreement you have with your ISP. At my house I get 55Mbps down and 6 Mbps up. If I switched contracts of service I could go to a much faster package. Say 55 Mbps down and 25 Mbps up, however the price jump is crazy. The most important number to you when you are running a webserver is the upload speed. Download speed isn't needed as much. The only time you will use download speed on the webserver is when someone is uploading files to it. You might need a business level contract in order to get faster upload speeds.

    All depends on your area and ISPs. You could run a speedtest from speedtest.net or a similar service to see what currently your speeds look like.


    Mail Portion
    Are you sure you can send emails at all from the webserver? I would recommend using thunderbird or evolution for a client. Also webmail would be a viable option for easy access when you aren't on your regular systems.


    Hope that helps.

    This forum doesn't accept HTML in its posts. For formatting, like many other forums, it uses BBCODE, see http://ubuntuforums.org/misc.php?do=bbcode.

    To get blank lines between paragraphs, push "Enter" twice.
