Should I put my MySQL database on a separate server?
Hi. I currently use a droplet with 2GB of RAM running Ubuntu. It runs fine, but of course MySQL consumes all the RAM it can find. Apache is set to run 12 threads at about 90MB each.
Would it make sense to rather put the DB on a separate droplet in the same datacenter and reduce the size of the web server droplet to 1GB?
