I’m planning to deploy a Django (Python) app on Apache + MySQL using Ubuntu linux and I wonder if there will be any difference between running it a 32 bit OS vs 64 bit. I installed a 32 bit version of ubuntu thinking that is might use a bit less memory, but I don’t really know. Is there any advantage to use a 64 bit OS? I want to keep memory usage down and I will try to deploy with a 512MB or 1024 MB droplet.
