Facing server down problem from last 3-4 days. No help/response from digitalocean.

I was using a server with 512 MB RAM. It was going down, if real time visitors are more. Upgraded the server to 1GB. Still facing the same problem.

It goes down, if more than 30 users are active at a moment.

Any help will be appreciated.

@Tony Tsang <br> <br>My website is a simple wordpress website. <br> <br>Added a swap file. I have one doubt. How swapped memory gets freed up? <br> <br>Contacted DO. they are telling it is because of mysql crash.

You may consider adding swap file, at least the server won’t goes down immediately. <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-add-swap-on-ubuntu-12-04 <br> <br>You app seems very memory intensive, there is nothing to do with limited memory. <br> <br>The solutions is to optimize your code, bring up a higher memory instance. <br> <br>Or put a load balancer in front and bring up multiple droplets at the back to spread out the load.
