This question about Installation of Foswiki: Answered
Memory Requirements for Virtual Machine
I want to buy some hosting services for a couple of FOSWIKI instances. The hosting seem to be priced around the RAM memory. If I was to install Foswiki on Debian/Ubuntu OS how much memory should I expect to use for each instance. Not these will not have very heavy usage, they are for special interest society.
PS- I am looking to use LinNode
. Can I start with the 360MB ram option?
I'd generally recommend a minimum of 1GB, though that's only because I've never tried anything smaller. The size of instances is bounded on the lower end by perl, at around 40K, and the upper end by the limits of your imagination and the plugins you install!

Most VM providers allow you to instantly upgrade your server, so you could start at 512MB and see how you get on.
You can also use a "lighter" web server such as lighttpd or nginx instead of Apache, which will help.
Using FastCGI will also help, as it will prevent the box being brought down by too many requests.
