Resources requirement for the Pootle Server.



  • Memory: At least 512MB RAM, but more will be highly beneficial.
  • Disk space. (to define, according to the number and size of files. XLIFF files and the DB storage. plus, the backup temporary space?)

A _Linode 768_ equivalent solution or a Linode 512 at least would be a good start ... thought...

Debian Squeeze would be nice.
