Digitalocean cannot handle Magento - constant 504 error timeout

Digitalocean cannot handle Magento - constant 504 error timeout

Digitalocean cannot handle Magento - constant 504 error timeout

* Magento uses too many resources and constantly crashes - ERROR 504

 

DOMAINS : audiobuy.hk , audiodubai.ae , audiobuy.com.au , audiobuy.com.sg

 

Magento multi-store

digital ocean server cannot handle magento.gif

 

SERVER SPEC (digitalocean) :
6 vCPUs , 16GB / 60GB Disk

We have contacted DigitalOcean and they say that Magento uses an "abnormal RAM and CPU resource". 

 

We are contacting clients advising them of Magento's resource problem , using Magento means you need to spend alot of money on a dedicated server and even then it may fail.

 

Advice please - we need to move away from Magento due to the resources it uses and constant downtime caused by this.

 

If it does connect , it takes half a minute.

Re: Digitalocean cannot handle Magento - constant 504 error timeout

Did you setup the server yourself?

Is the server properly setup and optimized properly for Magento?

What web server are you using?

What caching system are you using?

Did you tune the MySQL/Percona/MariaDB properly?

Just replying to this because this still seems to be an issue in 2021, using the "Magento 2 Open Source" droplet app available in the digitalocean marketplace, every 24 hours i would be greeted with a 504 and had to reboot the server, got so annoying i just ended up killing my builds on digital ocean and moving elsewhere and using a different platform.

A server that isn't properly optimized out of the box will unfortunately not be able to handle Magento properly.

Hi @jasonloeve 

This issue can be caused by Varnish. After Varnish update some settings crash and it can't process big pages. Have you tried to disable Varnish?

 

Magento 2 Open Source 1-Click App is our app and we've never received similar support requests. Now, we are looking for the reason.

 

If someone faced the same issue, please let us know support@eltrino.com
