Parallels Plesk 12.0.18 high memory usage

Posted October 2, 2014 5.1k views

Hi. I have a 5$ droplet ,runing CentOS 6.5 x32 and after trying several free control panels , i decided to go with Parallels Plesk 12.0.18 .So after i purchased a 4$ Web Admin Edition license , i was surprised to see how much memory is eating :
314.84 MB from the 512 MB total Memory and i didn’t even installed my wordpress website. I mean is eating a lot right?
The last free control panel i used was eating 112 MB .
I don’t want to purchase a bigger droplet as my website is not yet lunched and i have no idea how much traffic i will have.

I opted for the $10 droplet with CentOS 6.5 64bit, and I’m not experiencing any memory issues. But I did setup a Swap file, which is recommended and not part of the default CentOS install.

Seems i will have to go with plesk. i have close to 10 sites

Sorry, maybe you should upgrade

I have decided to use webuzo instead of plesk and the money i used to pay for plesk i have upgraded my droplet.Hope i made the right decision.

PS: i have only one site.
