I am wanting to setup a droplet to run an Xenforo forum, it is a new site, so will be small, but have a few questions

  1. What droplet should I go for, as in terms of ram and cpu?

The Xenforo site is unclear on system resources required for their software, but we’d recommend starting with a 1gb Droplet for the MySQL and PHP requirements, then adjusting upwards if you run into performance issues once Xenforo is installed and running.
