The Pogo B01 is the model I got the first time. Is there a better model for web hosting?So I'm guessing there is no one pogoplug model over another that will better suit as a dev webserver. Could you suggest another small server like this in the same price range? ($25 - $30US) Or maybe a slightly better alternative at a slighly higher price range($30 - $50US), but still using just a few watts.WarheadsSE wrote:Yes, but remember that you won't be running anything intensive on it at a high performance. Try to stay lightweight (that includes the server software!)
Will a website hosted on a flash stick be as durable as one set up on a hard drive?I know -- I didn't ask this very well. I could host a site on a flash drive or a hard drive. Which will more likely wear out first from a typical CMS (Drupal/Wordpress) hosting situation: a flash drive or a hard drive?WarheadsSE wrote:Are flash sticks as durable as hard drives?
If you know of web articles/blog posts with concrete suggestions on best practices for a well-thought-out web-hosting setting situation using a pogoplug, I'd be grateful.I think nginx is what I'll go with. I want to experiment with the limits of such a system are because there seem to be similar limits on sites in a shared- hosting situation. I might try drupal and/or wordpress with mysql and/or sqlite to see how they work out. Again, if anyone has any favorite blog posts with good suggestions on setting something up something like this, I'd be grateful.WarheadsSE wrote:There are a few out there, but try to stick to lighttpd / nignx / non-huge python django.
