Posted in by

Drupal Server Specs

Operating System
Linux
Web Server
Apache
Database
MySQL
Server Language
PHP

This set up is often referred to as a L.A.M.P. stack which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. As long as the hosting provider can provide those specs you should be in a good place. The next step is considering the cost for each possible hosting provider, given that they can accommodate these server needs.
