I ordered a server, a month ago. Sadly, only now I noticed, that the ubuntu on it is 32 bit instead of 64 bit, so it uses PAE.
I have 16GB Ram on it (I always see PAE examples mentioning up to 8 GB Ram only - does that mean that I effectively loose 8GB?)
After reading a bit about PAE, I could see that it was mentioned, that every process still only can use up to 4GB Ram. Now, my question is, how does that come into play with PHP? Since it's a webserver, I basically only need the RAM for PHP itself, but does it count as single process? (I guess so) - So how can I use the full 16GB RAM, for PHP, with PAE?
