Good candidate. Thanks for mentioning it.
On the up side - it's FreeBSD based. :)
I guess my only disappointments would be that configuration
is done by way of PHP. But of course I could fix that.
Doesn't provide swap space - this seems like this could be
a real liability under heavy load/outside abuse, even with
a decent amount of RAM/Memory.
Thanks again for the reply.
