So i really like LynxChan, i dumped my c panel hosting account. The cheapest digital ocean dedicated vcpu with hyperthreading is 40 bux a month, 4g ram and 2 cpu's. They have shared vcpu's the cheapest is 5 a month, 1cpu and 1g ram. Serious question, in general terms, how much of a server does one need? I take it the 5 bucks a month server wouldnt be wise in case the site gets lots of traffic. I kno, every asshole thinks they get lots of traffic but that is rare...still, what type of ram/cpu could handle a LynxChan site that would get lots of traffic? I only know how to install Lynx on ubuntu 18 by the way. I know centos is reccomended, i could learn if i had to how to use that. I know its a general question, but how much ram / cpu would be able to handle a lot of boards and a lot of traffic? 5 bucks a month to 100 bucks a month plans, i really dont know how much of a server is adequate in case the site got popular.

I dunno, mewch has like one core and either 2 or 4 gb ram and handles a shitload of requests.

Delete only files
Delete media (Actually removes the saved files from the server, standard file deletion only removes the reference to the selected posts)
