I’m an artist and have a small website with a wordpress installation with a few static pages, and for a long time I’ve had issues with the website crashing from running out of memory. I’ve run mySQLtuner loads of times and eventually exhausted all the setting options it told me, but my website still crashes. Sometimes it goes a few weeks without crashing, others it crashes most days, like this week.
I’m on the smallest droplet with 1GB memory, and a lot of articles I see on troubleshooting say to just upgrade the server size. I don’t much fancy having to pay double the hosting costs without being sure it’s necessary. So I wanted to ask from people who know better. Is 1GB really not enough for a dinky website like mine? There’s like nothing on it, and I have Redis object cashing enabled.
Are there things I could try to possibly fix this? I’ve been holding off on asking for help for so long, but it’s gotten to be such a pain. :\
