Today I was evaluating my discourse server and found two weird things.
1- If I understand correctly, the discourse postgres_data folder which is in /var/discourse/shared/standalone folder, is where discourse stores the database. Now this folder for my forum is about 8GB. Which I believe is too big for a humble forum. Can someone explain why its too big?
2- I have another folder named postgres_data_old that is also about 7GB. What is this for?
Also, my server memory was about 4GB. I found its mostly consumed. So I upgraded it to 8GB. Again I think a humble forum shouldn’t need that much of memory.
