I have been evaluating the idea of spinning up a Digital Ocean VM for my web hosting as a cost effective alternative to shared web hosting. Digital Ocean requires you to know how to understand operating systems, I just happen to be the right guy for the job. I wanted to field test my future setup on my Raspberry Pi to get an idea of how much time it is going to take and what I can do to tune it for maximum performance. All of my sites have been converted to WordPress, my desire was to build a LEMP (Linux Engine-X, MySQL and PHP) stack to accommodate this setup.
The Raspberry Pi that I am using is an original model B. This has 512MB and powered by a 700mhz CPU. The latest version of the Pi was bumped up to 1GB of memory and powered by a quad core 900mhz CPU. The results of this install will vary based on the hardware you are using.
