I'm looking at setting up a linux/apache web server, as cheaply as possible.
I want to be able to handle a moderate level of traffic, say 3000 visitors a day.
I will be serving mostly static html pages.
I'm planning on running Debian stable, with Apache 1.3.
What kind of hardware will I need to do this? Can I get away with something in the 400 MHz range, with lots of RAM?
What if I want to run a php web application, with mysql backend, would this configuration be able to handle that?
