Installing on a VPS...

    Hey guys, I have a VPS that has only 256MB of ram allocated to it.

    I want to do some testing with ISPConfig just for my own personal use, but I can't get it to install because the PHP compile keeps dying due to a shortage of memory (there is no swap on my VPS).

    I decided to use distcc to compile it and it almost works... I've opened the /compile_aps/compile file and added CC=distcc in front of the ./configure statement for PHP. It works fine, takes a while -- but seems to work, and then near the end of the compile it dies again, I'm guessing trying to compile something on the localhost.

    I'll get up the error text ASAP, but I thought someone that has tried this might be able to give me some advice in the meantime.

    This is the last thing my remote distcc box says before the compile craps out...

    Jan  4 13:48:37 skybox distccd[8270]: job complete
    Here is what the compile spits out when it dies:

    Just a thought, setup a swap file (rather then partition) and use that for now. Not nearly as good as a swap partition but should work. Remember, that sucker is going to be dog slow with only 256mb memory...

    They don't allow it, something about hogging resources on the box... It's an OpenVZ system... I have really just started experimenting with VPSs so I'm a bit of a n00b.

    You could shrink your existing partition(s) and then create a swap partition. I'll publish a tutorial about this topic on Sunday.
