WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I just signed up with webfaction and I'm basically a beginner. I setup an OSQA instance that promptly gobbled closed to 90 MB of memory and I received a message from the webfaction team advising me that I Was way over my memory limit.

I deactivated the OSQA website in the control panel, so the url now has the webfaction "coming soon" message, but after I stopped the apache instance, it restarted after 20 or so minutes and is again consuming a certain amount of memory, though not much because the app hasn't actually handled any requests.

My question is how I can get my OSQA experiment to stop permanently until I'm ready to start it again.

On a related note, is OSQA supposed to consume 90MB of memory? If so, can I use a different server other than apache2 that won't consume huge amounts of memory? I have read of some others, like GEvent, that reputedly consume much less.

Thanks all,

Thom

Edit the crontab and comment out the line that restarts your app. You can edit the crontab with this command in SSH,

$ crontab -e

You can try to reduce memory by following the Django memory documentation,

Or you can use another server, but you would have to build the stack from source. We do not provide any alternative server stack installers.
