    Hey all,

    I am currently running a 32-bit OS with 2 Cores and 4 GB of ram, I was having high loads caused by one customer on wordpress (MySQL) so i decided to take a look at MySQL tuner which informed me that allocating more then 2GB of ram for a 32-bit OS can cause instability and that I should upgrade to a 64 Bit OS so I can use all the ram i have allocated to the server.

    My provider advised me of the following....

    So is my provider correct or should i switch over to the 64 bit OS to use all of the 4 GB of ram. My server is maxing out on SQL which is why I am looking for a solution to fix it or bring down the resources usage.

    Hello :)

    One potential solution would be to switch to the 64-bit OS and check to see if this helps improve the performance of MySQL. You could always switch back to 32-bit, depending on how much effort is required for the migration of the VPS.

    Thank you.
