So I moved ONE of my sites from shared hosting to see if I can get more speed. While the speed has been a little better at times, I am now having memory issues. Keep in mind, this site currently has almost no visits (less than 10 PER DAY) and not a lot of content yet.
I am running W3 Total Cache with with Xcache on the Database and Objects. Since I am still in the week trial, I thought let me lower the memory to 300MB to see how it will be next week. First day I am getting e-mails saying I went over the limit.
If I am going over the limit with almost no visits, what happens next week when we go live? Still will not have a ton of volume, but could top a couple hundred visits/day and on the night of our podcast, could be a couple hundred at the same time.
My fear is the amount of memory I will need to not run into problems may be so much that it is too costly. BTW, this same exact site, never had issues on the shared server that I know of, where I thought the amount of ram we were allocated was less than 300MB. If that is not true, why would we be given less ram on the VPS than the shared?
