Hello everyone and pleased to meet you, this is my first post!
I’m not hugely technical but I recently bought a VPS and installed yunohost because I want to make my life online more independent. I have managed to install some instances of software that I want to use (Nextcloud, Searx, EmailPoubelle, Wordpress) but I am also having some problems with stability (sometimes my VPS becomes unresponsive until I restart it) as well as not being able to install other software (e.g Glitch-Soc will start to install but then stops halfway through and does not resume).
When I run a diagnosis on my Yunohost installation I am warned that my system is low on RAM, that ‘the system has no swap at all’ and that I should consider adding it.
Does anyone know how I can add swap?
My level of skill/experience: I have never set up my own hosting before. I can navigate the webadmin. I have beginner-level proficiency with the linux command line.
If anyone can help I would be very grateful
Thanks in advance
My YunoHost server
Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version: 220.127.116.11
I have access to my server : Through SSH and through the webadmin
Diagnosis log (system resources section):
[ERROR] The system has only 32 MiB (3.2%) RAM available! (out of 977 MiB)
[INFO] The system has no swap at all. You should consider adding at least 512 MiB of swap to avoid situations where the system runs out of memory.
- Please be careful and aware that if the server is hosting swap on an SD card or SSD storage, it may drastically reduce the life expectancy of the device.
[SUCCESS] Storage / (on device /dev/vda1) still has 17 GiB (75%) space left (out of 23 GiB)!
