Dunno if anyone's running anything similar. I recently shifted to Nginx
from Cherokee - and in so doing I setup a virtual server using
VirtualBox to run it in. My primary use is for serving a pair of
This is not (currently) a high-traffic server - but I do want it to run
well regardless. My current configuration for the virtual hardware is 1
CPU and 1G RAM. Nginx (obviously) is installed, as is php-fpm. Mysql
is running on the host - both host & guest are Ubuntu.
Generally, of that 1G I see half in-use, a quarter cached, and a quarter
free. So my first reaction is I don't THINK I'm starving the VM for RAM
- but maybe I'm missing something.
I generally don't seeing anything actively running except for php during
a request - which hits 25% usage.
Any suggestions for modifying my virtual or nginx config? Or do I need
to focus on Wordpress caching?
