DigitalOcean MariaDB Programming WordPress

Bigger and better

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my not-so-powerful droplet. Since writing that I have had to upgrade my little droplet to be a bit more powerful. Now it is sporting 2 GB of RAM instead of one. Double the memory and unfortunately double the cost.

I ended up upgrading because MariaDB kept crashing because it ran out of memory and that lead to this blog to be down, too. The only other option was that I would have closed Makro so not really an option. Yeah sure, it is not profitable by any means but it’s my baby. And surprisingly enough it has active users who seem to use it almost as much as I do.

No shit, Sherlock.

But that upgrade might not be the last. I’ve been working on something this past couple of weeks and if it ends up working I might need more resources for hosting it. Or not. It’s hard to say at this point. I am quite excited about it at the moment but I’ll write more of it later on.
