First Post - Linux OS on Dedicated Server

Hi All,

I just found MMuisic today and thought it looked interesting.

I've been reading the docs and don't find recommendations for a dedicated server.
In a very short time I'm adding a 3rd server to my web site and I'm going to use it for testing this program. I've tried installing on my home server unsuccessfully so far, I'll get.

These are the server OS options:
Ubuntu18 Basic Server
CentOS7 Basic Server
Debian (don't remember the v)

Apache or nginx
PHP version
MySQL or Mariadb
mod-rewrite on or off
gstreamer, lame, FMP, curl ...
what is recommended after basic server install?
