I'm building a small host at home that will host one tiny interactive website to about 10 people. I am looking for the most efficient GNU/Linux OS to do this on.
The OS has to be small, both in terms of getting it downloaded and in terms of the space it takes up on the hard-drive (or more likely the flash-drive). It doesn't need to have a GUI and it only needs programs essential to hosting and file-management: I need to be able to install, move, rename and delete files in the directory; I need to be able to test connections and manage the networks this machine is connected to, not much else.
I will be installing Apache Webserver and Oracle MySQL to manage and host the site. I will edit and build the site on a different machine.
My default choice so far is openSUSE Leap Gnome, but it feels like it still has features I don't need and won't use. I've been looking around but I can't find anything like this - has anyone come across something like it?
