Recommended droplet size for wordpress and Joomla combo
Hi guys, can you tell me how much System requirments I need to run WordPress, Joomla and do occasional run php and python webpages on…
Let me give you a bit of context..
I want to learn how to fully customize wp and joomla but also learn php and django from the ground up.. I am wondering what would be a reasonable size droplet to use for now.. I expect at most no more than 5 people connecting at a time on the site.. mostly it will be me just checking edits and so forth.. tweaking and experimenting…
Reason I ask this is because after 7 days of headaches with zero experience of ssh, linux, commands like systemctl start httpd, ssh keys and so forth I finally thought I was going somewhere had mariandb, phpmyadmin, httpd, sftp, wordpress running but when I tried installing pureftpd I think it also installed postgresql and mariandb crushed and log said something about not being enough resources. looking at monitoring tools on DigitalOcean I saw the charts spike from 60% to 100% right at the same time too..
being the rookie I am I deleted the droplet instead of attempting to remove postgresql incase it was the reason marian would not start. I forgot what I was installing but I remember it mentioning how postgresql eats up more resources than mysql.. I think it was virtualmin..
Its been a lot of try and error but I have learnt quite alot thanks to the community guides and tutorials and I am grateful for them and thanks in advance for any recommendations.
