  • NodeBB

    How much memory does your server have? Do you have swap setup?

  • #3

    @baris 512 MB and no swap. The server is from Vultr
    My current server is 512 MB with 512 MB Swap. That server is a VMware VM on my ESXi Server

  • NodeBB

    Try setting some swap, the build process can consume more than 512mb memory and that would cause the process to be killed.

  • #5

    @baris That seems to have solved it, Thanks a lot.
