I decided to move this blog together into a new VPS to host my personal rails projects :). Now, I’m not sure if this’ll be a permanent thing since I sort of jumped on the offer upon impulse but so far, I’m liking the service.

This server is running Ubuntu 10.4 with Pushion Passenger, Nginx, Ruby Enterprise Edition and PHP-FPM.

So why Nginx and not Apache? Well, aside from having it bundled with the latest version of Passenger, nginx historically has consumed less memory than Apache. The trade off of course is that I’ll still be running ruby 1.8.7 but I guess that’s fine since some of the plugisn I’ve been using have conflicts with 1.9.x.

I’ll be pushing a post detailing how I configured this server in a bit.
