Now I don't want to ignite another WW but I have a moodle server with P4 3 GHz and 2 Gb RAM. I am currently running a WAMP install but have been dabbling in linux of late (Ubuntu 6.10 - so I am reasonably comfortable with it).
Here it comes - If I reformat the same server to ubuntu linux am I likely to get more speed and better connectivity for my users? I currently have 1500 users with about 50 connected at any one time. I have read most of the posts about tuning your server and have done so but I would like to eek a little more speed out of the thing in the short term.
My linux install is on a celeron desktop with 512 RAM and runs quicker than the server on windows (with no users).
