My vps has a lot of ram usage

Hi! I installed vestacp in a 10$ drolplet 1cpu/1gb.

The ram usage is 700Mb always.

Sometimes the wordpress give me http 500 when i try to enter in dashboard.

0 visitors in the website.

Someone can help me? Thx!

I checked the ram with “top” in console and…

If i enter to my website the ram usage goes from 640mb to 750mb :S

Its weird. In “top” all hte process are with 0 ram usage and suddenly mysql takes 30% (how its possible if no ones its in the website)

I have 10 websites with 0 visitors in the vps.

The vps installation is fresh from 16/08/2016

But the ram used is always more than 640mb

and for install wordpress, do you use serverpilot? or something like this? do you have letsencrypt as well?

I use a $5 droplet and have about 60 accounts all with Wordpress, no issues at all.

Maybe VestaCP uses alot of RAM?
