If you follow to our Virtualmin Installation, the installation script set the Swap file size to 263M by default. If you wish to check your current swap file, run the “free -h”
[[email protected] ~]# free -h total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 992M 369M 426M 500K 195M 470M Swap: 263M 120M 142M
To go about this, let us change the swap file size twice the size of your current RAM. In our situation, we have 1 GB of RAM. In my case, I will change the 2 GB.
Let us get this started!
dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile count=2048 bs=1MiB
The 2048 is the MB size I wish to apply for my swap file. If you wish to change these to your desired MB size, feel free to do so.
If you wish to check your change, run free -h again. This should return 2 GB of size. For example:
[[email protected] ~]# free -h total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 992M 496M 135M 19M 360M 320M Swap: 2.0G 4.6M 2.0G
