WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm on the centos64 server, and when I quick install a rails app, the app takes up more than 50mb of memory, and I'm talking about the 'hello_world' app, i.e serving a static index.html file. Is this normal? if it is, I guess it's pretty unrealistic to run a rails app on the base webfaction plan right? ps -u $USER -o rss,command outputs the following:

Yes, that's normal - but it's not really much of a concern because:
