It’s Been a Great Ride There is no doubt that Wordpress is a great piece of software. As much as people love to hate on PHP, it runs a lot of the internet. I’ve been running Wordpress personally and professionally for years. It only gets better. I was only hacked once :) Rethinking What I Need Since moving to a Low End Box, my resources have been tight. Even on a tuned system, I can’t run much more interesting things than my Nginx+PHPfpm+MySQL.
