How can I optimize my 5$ droplet? Ubuntu 12.10

I have the following things installed on it : LAMP - No one except me use my website. The website is basic html, nothing more. Teamspeak 3 server VSFTPD SSH fail2ban Nginx - only using nginx for RTMP streaming (almost never). Its off 95% of the time.

I feel like I’m running out of ram, or that the cpu can’t handle my server…

I have a bot that uses Java to deliver music to my Teamspeak 3 server, but I limit the bot’s ram usage to about 50mb, but its having a hard time keeping the song smooth.

Anyone know what I can do to optimize my server? I already created a 1G swap file

How much memory is actually being used? See Help! Linux ate my RAM!.

See if you can increase the bot’s memory limit. I would also look into switching from Apache to nginx completely: How To Migrate from an Apache Web Server to Nginx on an Ubuntu VPS.

You can start by uninstalling PHP since your website is html, unless RTMP streaming is using it. Stop nginx when not using.
