I have spent two days trying to get a server I have on DigitalOcean to run Magento. DigitalOcean has great tutorials, Magento does not (at least, not to me). I want my shop to run on a LEMP stack (Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP) for swiftness.
I initially chose Magento because I heard it scales well. I don't expect to be a huge online force though, but hey, anything can happen. I believe a similar post was here on DN some time ago, but the search function doesn't seem to go that far.
Does anyone have any good recommendations? Preferably, if you have a shop or have experience working with one.
