MySql going down frequently - Magento and Wordpress on Small Droplets

Posted August 28, 2014 3k views

A Dev Magento site installation on 512MB droplet with very few prducts and absolutely rare visits.
DB isnt grown big enough, even then mysql going down frequently.

Another small droplet for couple of low visits wp sites - where mysql goes down a bit less frequently after installation of cache plugins .

1) Is Re-sizing Magento droplet a correct approach to deal with mysql down issues? Even though its a very small magento site with some 100 products at max.

2) Does my droplets ip changes after upgrading? i really do not want to mess up with name records and host files again?

Looking for the advices and pointers to deal with these issues .

Thank You :-)
