ok so I'm really confused about how Apache, PHP and WordPress memory allocation works.
For example in WordPress there is a config variable (define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');) for memory allocation which is typically set to 64M by default.
In addition PHP has a memory allocation in php.ini (memory_limit) which is set really low by default (e.g. 128M)
If I have a server with 2GB of ram how should I allocate memory to WordPress and PHP?
Should I set php memory to 2GB? The server is a VPS also running mysql, cpanel etc. so I'm thinking I should probably limit it to 1GB instead. Also, if I limit php memory to 512MB will it ever use more than 512M anyway?
Then, what about WordPress - should I set it to match the php limit?
If I have php set to 1GB of memory and 2 WordPress sites should I set each to 512MB - will WordPress obey the memory limit aswell?
Just trying to get a handle on my memory allocation strategy.
