Installation/runtime memory requirements? #5849
I'm trying to set up Ghost from sources on a small 512MB Centos7 x64 droplet on DigitalOcean.
However, I cannot execute npm install because seemingly I run out of memory and Linux kills npn. I believe I've got a swapfile configured on this VPS.
Is this expected? Just what is the minimum configuration required to install/configure/run a baseline Ghost instance?
P.S. Quick update - turns out the swapfile wasn't correctly mounted on the VPS which explains the memory exception. Still curious about the answer to the original question however.
@ChrisRus I referred to the problem @halfdan linked to. According to the DO forum this is common problem with npm (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/npm-gets-killed-no-matter-what) and adding swap space should hopefully solve the problem. Glad you got it working :-).
