Amazon EC2 instance

r3.large | 2    | 15,25     | 3 x 40

3 SSD Storage are used for:

  1. Ubuntu SO
  2. Wordpress
  3. MySQL 5.6

Server service are:

  • Apache 2.4
  • PHP 5.6 (PHP-FPM) with OpCache
  • Memcache

Wordpress use:

  • SEO Yoast
  • AVADA theme

The question is: I'm scared! 2 CPU it seem few... are really few?

  • This is offtopic for wordpress developent. Maybe ask this over in Server Fault? serverfault.com – Howard E Jun 27 '16 at 10:34
  • @HowardE I know... but is really specific for wordpress... All wordpress guys are here... – ar099968 Jun 27 '16 at 10:50
  • There is no easy/reasonable answer to expect. And still off-topic as mentioned by @HowardE. There are server stress test tools which can help you out. – Charles Jun 28 '16 at 4:57

This is why AWS is great. Monitor you server and if that's either too much or not enough, scale up or down. But it sounds like more than enough.

  • And this @Howard is the reason why ppl keep asking off-topic questions. They know that they still get an answer. (and yes I know/understand why some still answer but what are rules for if ppl think there is no reason to follow those.) – Charles Jun 28 '16 at 15:50
