I just deployed a new 5$ droplet (1 GB Memory / 25 GB Disk) with Wordpress preinstalled (WordPress 5.5.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).
My idea was to run Woocommerce to sell some courses.
Since there won’t be hardly any traffic for now, I started with the smallest droplet.
After installing Woocommerce, I noticed that I couldn’t access any page of the website anymore.
Checking my droplet graphs, I saw that the CPU usage grew to more than 100% and I had to shut it down and turn it on again to be able to access my website.
If I try to add a new product to Woocommerce, the same problem happens again.
There are just Woocommerce and thrive themes installed in the droplet.
Do you think that this droplet is not strong enough or maybe I’m doing something wrong?
