Several weeks ago I received a free VPS from ChunkHost, my goal was to install an instance of BeEF but my VPS has limited resources. Is it even possible? Here is my VPS configuration:
- OS: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS (Linux 3.2.0-29 x86_64)
- RAM: 128 MB
- storage: 3GB
But, extra RAM costs money, so I found a workaround: create a swap file of 512MB. I used "dd" to create the file (here is a good howto about swap file creation), then I activated it and added to my fstab. Then, bundle install succeeded, no error received!
This was the only problem I had with BeEF installation. Everything else went fine, and the program runs smoothly.
I hooked several browsers (2 Firefox, 1 Internet Explorer 9 and one Chrome instance), and there is no slowness at all. The web UI feels responsive and so does the VPS. Here are some screenshots of the top command:
