I have a somewhat similar problem: wordpress, gallery1, gallery2, mysql,
php5, imap, fetchmail, ...
First of all, it is a choice of applications. Maybe Drupal is less
resource hungry than Joomla? PHP5 is faster than php4. Lighttpd uses far
less memory than apache. I use Lighttpd and it works perfectly!
Secondly, you might add a few applications which you previously didn't
find necessary: a php accelerator, like eAccelerator (not in Debian, but
compiling it is easy) or a web reverse proxy (web caching proxy) like
squid or pound, or ... Thirdly, configure all your applications to use
as few resources as possible: edit your mysql configuration to disable
all database engines you don't need (frees op tens of megs!) and use
only one php thread, for example. Using two simultaneously will send you
slug into swapping hell.
Anyone some nice ideas?
If you need config snippets, let me know.
