I want some advice on setting up a web server. Previously I have been using Webmin to manage my server but I am trying to preserve as much cpu and memory as possible. Webmin installs a lot of software I don't want and will never use. The website is a large forum which doesn't really need anything much more than apache, php, and mysql - or at least I think.
Will I be alright in just using?
yum install httpd2
yum install php php-mysql
yum install mysql-server
I am using a hardware firewall which block all incoming ports except 80 and 22, although 22 is IP specific.
Am I missing anything from the above, like any apache modules, selinux, suhosin, mcrypt, or php-cli? I don't really know what else I need.
Thanks in advance.
