I decided to completely modernize the entire stack my website was running in.
And I mean the entire stack. This used to look like: [frontend client] <—–> [backend server*]
*backend server does all the things. Typical LAMP setup.
Does anyone have any advice, tips, or best practices for running a stack that's designed for high throughput? I decided I'm probably not going to be using HTTP2 or web sockets at all, so this is entirely HTTP1.1 and every server is TLS secured and at idle/low volume this setup costs ~ $70/mth in mainly low-end VMs.
I'd be happy to answer any questions about this too
