Right now I’m a running single droplet : 4 vCPUs 8GB / 20GB Disk
It still feels like it’s struggling so I want to scale horizontally but also keep costs roughly around 60 a month.
But which setup is a good starter setup I can build on?
Here are my 2 noob options:
droplet(mysql droplet(redis cache)
Load balancer V droplet(lamp) droplet(lamp) V droplet(mysql and redis)
My biggest problem with single droplet was MySQL swapping. The server has a set amount of users it won’t grow much, like around 3000 max.
Does anyone have a similar setup ??
