    I am trying to create a CPanel install with the bare minimum of ram usage possible. Has anyone ever tried to do this? I currently do the following things to use the least amount of ram possible...

    Disable spamd
    Disable yum-updatesd
    Disable exim and all related e-mail services (Optional depending on if user needs mail)

    What I would like to work on...
    Is there a way to make MySQL use less then 14megs of ram?
    Can cpsrvd-ssl be disabled? (its not needed and rarely used)
    Is cpanellogd important?
    Are there any other either cpanel or default Fedora/centos services/processes that can be disabled?

    You may also want to perform an internet search for "Tweaking cPanel for Lower Memory Consumption" (with quotes).

    Regarding the MySql usage, you`d need to use a mysql tuner to check your settings and tweak it according to your server or just lower the settings really low if you want it to use very low resources. But that won`t make the scripts run better :)
