  • You should be able to get just about anything without a GUI installed to 256MB. What are you trying to accomplish?

  • Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, CentOS and Gentoo would run just fine

    pretty much anything should run on 256mb. centos would be kinda iffy but doable.

    Maybe you could try Minstall and run those stuff :)

    @ First one, 256MB will most likely be enough for that on Debian. I have a 128MB KVM running nginx + php fpm + MySQL + ZNC on Debian.

    Never tested pythong and django so can't verify for sure!

  • CentOS 6 will have problems installing on 256MB with the stock ISO. There are ways but you'll need to perform some magic tricks.

    Debian minimal. Yes, I run everything above and something else without any problems.

  • I normally run Debian on anything with less than 512mb RAM.

    Debian/Ubuntu/Arch for me, but CentOS can also be a good choice with some tricks with the installation.

    It depends on how much your website scales, these will run without any problems but later you may need more as python/django does eat quite a bit of memory.

    Seriously? image Django site has 5 times more visitors than the one with php.

  • @martip07 said: mysql

    You'll need to trim down the MySQL configuration to get that running smoothly in 256MB, but that's not difficult and will still work just fine. Everything else will be just peachy.

  • yes, 256 with debian can run those and handle tens of simultaneous hits without any problem. M

    My 256MB KVM runs CentOS just fine with the disk image @dmmcintrye3 made, he's got a thread here on how to do it somewhere.
