Wordpress site and LEMP ram

Hi all, I’m new!

I would like to ask about hosting a site that currently does not have many visitors and is not heavy. If i install wordpress with LEMP, it will require 1GB of RAM or 512? What should i choose?

I do “top” in terminal and i see with LEMP and Wordpress installation (without plugin&site data) on Ubuntu i use 90% of total ram.

KiB Mem: 501880 total, 484296 used, 17584 free, 13436 buffers KiB Swap: 0 total, 0 used, 0 free. 345056 cached Mem

What can i do to optimice this? :(


Perfect! Any tutorial to add a proper caching?

Thank you very much.

Perfect thanks!! I do not know if this question is correct: How many visits can support 512 mb ram in a website of wordpress, lemp and basics plugin? Thanks again!
