Currently I am hosting my site on 8GB memory plan with Wordpress in ServerPilot,whenever my site hit 500+ visitors my CPU goes beyond 80% .
i)Is it normal for CPU to reach 80%+ whenever the visitors reaches 500+ in 8GB memory?
ii)I am searching for an answer to counteract this problem and I have read that NGinx is better than Apache for performance plus squeezing out more number of visitors,so I am planning to switch to Nginx but I have no idea how to get started .So far all the tutorials I have read speaks of installing Nginx in a newly created droplet not for switching from APache to Nginx.I have also contacted the serverpilot support team and they said “they cannot provide any assistance for an Nginx-only stack” ,well I am lost!
Will anybody kindly help me!! any good tutorial link on “how to switch from APache to Nginx” in a live site will be appreciated.
