Hi Digital Ocean community,
Today I uploaded a WooCommerce XML shopping feed (400 products) to the facebook business shopping catalogue and while doing this it made the website unreachable.
I assume it was unreachable because facebook was downloading the catalogue from the XML feed (can see facebook has uploaded the primary product image onto facebook).
Where in the apache logs can I find what caused the website to stop loading for users? It was timing out.
What can be done to prevent the DigitalOcean server being unreachable in the future? Would the droplet need upgrading? If yes what specs?
I was thinking about creating a new droplet solely for this WooCommerce website or upgrading the current one. The droplet its currently on has other website on it but they aren’t very demanding traffic wise.
This is the current droplet specs -
Ubuntu 1 GB / 1 CPU Shared 25 GB Disk
Looking at the create droplet options would a dedicated CPU be best? I think the $40 month CPU-Optimized droplet is best pricewise (cheapest) -
4 GB / 2 CPUs 25 GB SSD Disk 4 TB transfer
Or would a shared CPU with the other Intel / AMD CPU options be viable? For example Premium Intel with NVMe SSD for $24 -
4 GB / 2 Intel CPUs 80 GB NVMe SSDs 4 TB transfer
Would there be a noticeable difference between the shared CPU and the dedicated CPU?
Are both droplet options good enough to prevent the server from being unreachable as described above?
What droplet option can withstand the most traffic?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer any of these questions!!
