Resizing Down Discourse Droplet


(Eric) #1

I’m currently on the 2GB RAM droplet with DO for my Discourse droplet. I’d like to actually drop this down to 1GB and will go through DO’s steps on doing so.

Are there any configuration changes I need to make on Discourse’s end or will it all automatically negotiated? I remember in earlier release there are “buffer” configs according to your droplet specs, not sure if those need to be changed at all anymore.

Add some (more) swap, and perhaps tweak the db_shared_buffers and UNICORN_WORKERS settings. Don’t forget to rebuild the app container after you make those config changes!

In addition to what Matt said, you will encounter serious problems later if you don’t have the recommended 2GB swapfile!
