I’m trying to deploy a simple blog using Ghost as it was recommended to me, I’ve added one page and one post, yet twice already the droplet deployed using DigitalOcean has crashed with me having to turn off and then reboot. This was pretty embarrassing as I had just tried to share my new site to be told it wasn’t working.
I’m using Ghost 4.13, with the free edition theme. My site is https://donna.dev
Droplet: Basic, 1GB Memory, 25 GB Disk, FRA1 - Ubuntu 20.04
I keep getting spikes in CPU (105% user when I was away from my machine) and I/O spikes with just myself using it which doesn’t feel right.
My partner has been using Ghost for his site for a few weeks now with many more photos, posts and users with no issues at all.
I’ve tried setting up a swap file in the hopes that works but I’m hoping someone else might be able to help too.
