I am going to be doing my blog soon and maybe another one if that goes ok, I am worried about the reports of all the resources WP takes up.
I have a dedicated box, it's a Dual Opteron with 2gb ram, this already runs a 70k+ a day uniques and a 20k+ a day uniques websites, no problems with that, I am worried tho about adding the WP to that dedi and the WP messing up meaning all my sites going down - I will be pumping good traffic into my blog via advertising for a week or so to get it going (Around 10k uniques a day) and as I said dont want that to make everything go down.
Am i worrying over nothing? I will obviously pay a WP admin guy to optimize WP so it uses up the least resources, but am still worried about it, I was gonna use a VPS to begin with but again I am not sure if that would handle it because I am reading bad things about resources WP takes up with cpu usage and spikes etc.
What do you think?
