Minimum Specs for a VPS?
« on: September 29, 2012, 05:02:42 pm »
Greetings,

With rebirth now down(indefinatly?),
I am now working on a server.

I was looking into cheap VPS and found one for $1.25USD.

It has the following Specifications
128mb RAM
5gb Storage
50gb Transfer


No information is provided on the VPU/CPU.

Would these specs be sufficient to run a server?
Obviously it will be running under WINE Without X.


Thanks in advance for any effort made to answer my Questions.

RAM needs to be higher for Windows....
I would go for at least one gig.

Thanks for the fast response.
As in OP It will be under WINE which is Linux.
Also there will be no X.

Any idea on how much would needed for the above setup?

I planned on going with 1000.
However if you think that 1.25 vps could handle 200 or 400 I could make new maps.

Well,
Gonna give it a shot on my Windows Computer it is only taking ~12MB Ram I doubt 128 MB ram will be a problem.
EDIT: Now it is ~17MB Ram heh... Still Think it would take many players to cause lag(And I doubt it would be a ram issue).

The thing is though as you add more to the world (players, quests, towns, random junk spread around, monsters, etc) the RAM usage is only going to increase and thus the lag as well.
