Running PHP CMS and Arma server on same machine

Post by Jules Winnfield »

I want to run a CMS for maintaining my Arma servers on a Linux machine.

The CMS will use Apache/PHP/PostGreSQL or MySQL (I prefer PostGreSQL).

Anybody has some experience with this?

Will the performance of the Arma server be affected too much?

Depends on whether costy stuff gets run whenever players check out, say, a ranking page generated by a script. There is no reason this shouldn't be possible in general; especially if you run the webserver at a lower priority than the game server.

It's easily possible. If you have a 2 core processor at least, you shouldn't have any problems.

Even when you lower the priority of the webserver and raise the priority of the arma server, you'll hit some cool lag bombs. Those are worth it, though. Depending on how you deal with them, anyway.

If you want a smooth-running arma server, my advice is to give it a dedicated processor, however you go about it. Get at least a dual-core server and you're fine.

Thanks both for your explanations.

I'll upload the CMS for download if you're interested in seeing the result.
