Hmm, but this, I don't understand. All the mail features are turned off, and I saw this post:

That's about 100 times more memory than you should need for the load
So if he has 4G RAM and it's 100 times more than he needs, surely 512Mb RAM is enough for a simple, low-volume local town forum running on phpbb with a max of about 20 users online at any one time?

So are you saying that swapping to worker, which the other guide says uses less RAM, would not help me then?
