I've been told a WP-install can easily consume 2 Gigs of memory when editing in visual composers in WP. When my Pi only has 4 GB available and on top on that I'm running MariaDB (NOT Nginx), then there really shouldn't be much RAM left for anything else should there?

Or did I get bad advise and is WP perfectly capable of running fast on efficiently on MariaDB and an RPi 4 ?

And if not: What is there of better alternatives to running a webserver on a PI? Preferably a CMS of some sort.

  • MariaDB (NOT Nginx) ... so you're running a database not a web server? - you still need a web server – Jaromanda X Jan 19 at 0:17

    yes, use nginx instead of apache - but that's just personal opinion. Also not sure if WP is written such that it actually needs apache specifically - how about you try it and see which works better - there is also lighttpd which, as you can tell from the name, claims to be a light (on resources) http server - though it doesn't have as many "features" as apache or nginx, but not sure if the lacking features are required for WP, again, give it a go, see what happens – Jaromanda X Jan 19 at 0:31

    I know of nothing beyond the google results for lightweight CMS – Jaromanda X Jan 19 at 7:40

    @ITBlacksmith "This thread can be closed now I think.", I think it would be helpful if you test and tell the summary on an answer here. Others could read your answers and findings. || In addition, try google => online website analysis tool. There is a lot of website in this case and you can get a statistic of your site. In this link I have tested your site. Check the result. The size is too large and the load time is kind of awful. – M. Rostami Jan 19 at 11:00

    "Is nginx faster and better than apache for the rpi 4?", [The official raspberry pi site ](projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/…) suggests LAMP which is Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. – M. Rostami Jan 19 at 11:04
