I run a x64 staging server here along with the following:
Solr Java etc.
However, I am about to get a linode vps for production and quickly realising that x86 is the way to go for their lowest RAM package (thinking to upgrade later). My staging server is x64 with 12gb ram, so going down to 300mb ram is going to feel devilishly slow ;/
Here are my questions:
1) Will I have problems transferring my scripts, dbs etc from a x64 to x86 server? e.g. solr indexes
2) Is it worth going for the x86 package? I am probably going to upgrade later down the line and x64 might be better for the servers with more RAM? should I stick with x64 instead as there isnt much difference when using with low RAM?
