By acting on above to suggestions, you can decrease your ram usage from 300MB to 164MB, however in today’s article, I’m going to explain you the way to reduce 100MB more RAM.

Replace bind with tinydns, bind use almost 100MB of RAM in your vps, and replacing it with tinydns, this ram usage will reduce.

Kloxo/lxadmin has a simple way to replace bind with tinydns, and it automatically convert all your websites dns setting.

  1. Login as ‘admin’
  2. Click on the ‘server’
  3. Click on server in which you want to convert apache to lighttpd, for my example it is “local host”
  4. Click on “switch program”
  5. Select “djbdns” from drop down box under “Dns” category
  6. Click on update.
  7. Kloxo (Lxadmin) will take few min to install tinydns and stop bind and to update configuration files.
  8. It will automatically convert settings of all your domains to lighttpd, and you will not have to create domains again.

And you are done
