    hi,

    i am going to launch a site very shortly which we expect to have some heavy traffic.

    we are looking at moving from vps to dedicated and spec is:

    Processor (CPU)
    2.93Ghz
    Quad Core Xeon
    Hard Drive
    2x1TB SATA
    (1TB Usable Space)
    Memory (RAM)
    16GB
    Bandwidth
    UNLIMITED

    i need to use cpanel as i am not confident enough managing in only ssh.

    so what i have currently is fastcgi running which sped the site up slightly.

    i need to know about apache, well it handle thousands of users on the site requesting pages with photos or forum?

    can i run nginx or lighttpd on cpanel server or what can i do to apache within cpanel to make it fast and not crash?

    many thanks

    With the server configuration, it looks good. But, is website going to be database centric ? Why don't you consider using SAS OR SSD drives ?

    For heavy traffic, I will suggest you to go with litespeed & apache. How many connections/visits do you forecast ?

    I would not suggest FCGI as the PHP handler unless that's the only site on the machine. FCGI will not handle a multi-site server well. It would be better to use DSO + mod_ruid2 to have both speed and security.
