Meza/Setup on a low-memory system

RAM = 2GB or less?Edit

If you run into memory errors during play execution, you can set the forks option in Ansible to 1 by either editing the system-wide config in /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg, or the Meza-specific config at /opt/meza/config/core/ansible.cfg.

It's also worth mentioning that if your server doesn't have any swap file, then you should add one [1].

Some functions may not work with the default amount of memory allocated.

// SVG thumbnailing requires more memory
// Maximum amount of virtual memory available to shell processes in KB.
$wgMaxShellMemory = 1024*300; // 307200K is 300M
