I’m currently running my stake pool on Droplets from Digital Ocean. I have installed core and relay ver. 1.27.0 in June 2020 on two rented VPS with 8 Gb RAM for 40$/m each.
Few days ago I have upgraded both nodes to ver. 1.29.0 and (like many others) noticed that nodes hangs with “starting” status. This problem has a solution - increase RAM to more that 8 Gb. I had to rent more expensive VPS with 16 Gb to startup my nodes on ver. 1.29.0

I decided to cut costs by moving nodes to Contabo (Contabo 🥇 Quality VPS & Dedicated Servers At Incredible Prices 🥇).
I followed very useful Guild guide (Guild Operators) to setup relay node on Contabo VPS.
It’s up and syncing now.
Now I have some troubles to shoot and seek to a help to do the following…
