The best server to host a RHEL 5 PHP/MySQL script

Tags:

Linux Server Hosting
Red Hat Enteprise Linux
I have a social network script with the capacity for videos, photos, music or uploading media directly from a user's cam.  It also has forums, blogs and classifieds where members could use these media to help present their points.  The script is PHP/MySQL, and OS Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (Red5) servers are recommended.  What type of Red5 server would be best for this script?



Software/Hardware used:
Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hard to answer since this would vary greatly.

1st) Is this a hosted solution? (Rackspace, etc.)
If so, one of their entry Linux servers would suffice. Just confirm storage especially dealing with the various media you are dealing with.

2nd) If not hosted, is this server going to be located in a data center or someone’s small office?
You will need to decide on either a rack-server (data center) or tower-based (office).

For number 2, you can purchase quite inexpensively a Dell Server with local storage to begin with and then as you grow, just add an external storage unit from PowerVaults all the way up to Equallogic platform.
