I have the following specification:

  • memory_limit(maximal 128 MB),
  • max_execution_time(max 60 sec)
  • same PHP-Prozesse(max 10)

Is this good enough for wordpress? I am having a small site with around 100 visits a day, so nothing really large. Do you think I could host 2 other wordpress installations on the server?

I appreciate your answer!

    You should be fine.. – Sisir Aug 18 '14 at 11:40
  • @Sisir Thx for your answer! How many resources do I need for one install. – Kare Aug 18 '14 at 12:45

Yes, that should be enough if you don’t install poorly written plugins or themes.

You should use PHP 5.5 and its built-in OPcache and a multisite setup for more sites. This will reduce load time and the resources you need for the sites.

  • Thx for your answer! I have read through OPcache. What do you exactly mean by that? How to use it? – Kare Aug 18 '14 at 12:46

    @Kare It is enabled by default, but you should check that. OPcache eliminates the need to recompile the PHP scripts for every request. wpkrauts.com for example is a multisite with OPcache (and no caching plugin). Average page generation time: 0.1 seconds. – fuxia Aug 18 '14 at 12:58
  • Thx for your reply! Which multisite plugin do you recommend? – Kare Aug 18 '14 at 12:59

    @Kare You don’t need any special plugin to run a multisite. See my installation guide. – fuxia Aug 18 '14 at 13:10
