Let me preface my entire article by saying that I'm a total newbie when it comes to everything that will come in this post.
About a week ago I decided to rent a VPS to run my own Minecraft server. I was doing my own thing, learning from youtube videos and the like, and managed to set up a website, databases, plugins, etc. all on Centos 6. Then I hit a wall.
My plan allows for 2GB of RAM, and 2GB of "VSwap." Now, when I purchased my server, I assumed vswap worked like burst RAM (i had seen this in another youtube video; it essentially acted like additional RAM).
Imagine my surprise when my server hit my 2GB limit and crashed; I was unable to recover it for quite a while.
So, if you guys are still reading: I can't find very much information on what Vswap is, or how to implement it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Other possibly necessary information: Centos 6, 64 bit. OpenVZ. SolusVM control panel.
On a side note, if anyone wants to come play with me, both the connection ip and website are bcraft.us
EDIT: Also since the first day I deleted my entire root directory and now everything starts with -bash-4.1# and never shows me what directory I'm in. Help with that would also be appreciated. Thanks!
