I'm kind of clueless when it comes to the hardware end of things. I have a dedicated server from rackspace that runs me about $200 a month.
I host about 15 sites or so (mostly brochure-ware/PHP stuff) and this setup has served me well for the last few years, but lately it's been bogged down a bit (recently started developing/hosting a few Ruby on Rails and Merb apps with a few more on the way).
Should this setup be acceptable by upgrading the RAM, or is it a relic that I should upgrade (if so, to what)?
Here's my current setup
- Transfer-Based-Bandwidth: 30GB
- Hard Drive: 20 GB EIDE
- Hard Drive: 80 GB EIDE
- Memory: 512 MB DDR RAM
- Processor: Single AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1.67 GHz
