Im migrated a buddypress site to a droplet with 512mb . and im having some issues.
The first instalation was fine but when i did the dump / export tables from wordpress, the mysql started to crash.
Then i created the swap and it stopped to crash BUT still couldnt use the server.
Then i did the changes on my.cnf and apache.conf ( https://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/MySQL_and_Apache_Optimization_Guide) and i can use it for 1 minute than it overload again but didnt crash
This is my free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 491 482 8 0 1 17 -/+ buffers/cache: 464 26 Swap: 511 506 5
The database only have 8mb… its not possible to be eating all the free memory…
