Which version of Unbuntu is best for WE and desktop apps?

I'm looking into a VPS plan and I have a choice of :

Unbuntu 11.10 32 bit (or 64bit).

or

Unbuntu 12.04 64bit. I assume I'd have to install the 32bit libraries for WE or any RS app to run?

Or do you guys prefer another Linux distro?

Thanks.

Our WE VPS has Ubuntu 12.4 64bit + ia32bit libs. Works just great for WE app hosing :)
32bit Libs needs to be installed on all 64bit systems for RS apps to run on Linux.

Thanks for the reply Akiland

What CPU and how many cores are you running?
How much ram is your WE app using and how many users can it concurrently support?

I'm really trying to digest as much information about WE and it's abilities on various VPS configurations.

That might help me determine different VPS plans.


Also, if I need to how would I install the ia32bit libs on Unbuntu 12.4?

Thank you :)

Those are it's specs:
2 x Intel Xeon
CPU E5540
2.53Ghz
1GB RAM

On my quick and not so scientific tests my curent project named Cobalt (Stand Alone build) it uses aprox. 32MB RAM and it seems to increase with about ~1.5MB per session so I guess it will handle as many sessions it can until you eventually run out of available RAM :)
CPU usage don't seem to be an issue. It uses somewhere between 1-7% with small spikes now and then. Though my app don't do that much yet, just some SQL inserts/updates, sending Push messages to iOS and some emails :)

Build with 2011r3

Sorry forgot about your question regarding ia32.
It's simple to install.
Just make your way in to the VPS using SSH and install ia32libs using apt-get :)
If I'm not mistaken, just run this command:
apt-get install ia32-libs

or possibly:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

(will ask for root password)

Nice, thanks ! :)


I will probably not be buying WE anytime soon but I will probably get my VPS soon (by the end of the month.)

I figure I'm going to be needing it because of the added bandwidth and the ability to run my compiled desktop apps in addition to WE if I ever get it.

Btw, can RS desktop receive both http and https incoming queries?
I seem to remember https socket may not be able to listen ?

To get an RS desktop app running on Unbuntu 12 with the 32bit lib is anything required that I might miss?

Thanks.

We'll have to see if someone else can chime in on those two ;)
