I only wish to build a very small one for my classmates.So i’d like to built it with only 512MB RAM in order to save money.Will discourse work with only one worker?
2GB of RAM, 25GB of hard drive for 7 bucks per month:
There’s no auto-billing so you have to go enter your credit card every single month. Otherwise, most bangs for your bucks and you don’t have to have a crippled discourse install.
Discourse will work with 1 sidekiq worker and 1 web worker. You need a minimum of 2 processes. You would probably have to use thin or puma.
Performance will not be great.
Rather than contorting the install to work in 512mb, I would personally view this as a challenge to find the best pricing for a server with the officially supported minimum of 1GB RAM. They get cheaper every year, which is something we are counting on.
Yeah, for example:
35GB SSD, 2 cores, 1TB traffic - all for $9/mo is possible in Ukraine.
For Russian speaking people I’d recommend to try this VPS selection tool - takes minutes to find the best propositions across the world:
Unfortunately, it has no English version, but switching to the USD currency and clicking on the dropdowns will allow you to quickly understand what’s going on.
Well you could always use a Linode for $10 which gives you 1GB of RAM, 24GB SSD and oh plenty of bandwidth and transfer.
I think Linode has problems with loading the Docker and AUFS kernel modules (or something like that), unfortunately.
You’re right, out of box it won’t work, but there’s a topic here describing how to get Docker and AUFS working on Linode.
