It's used about 100Mbyte of the swap. After an initial flurry, it's
settled down to no appreciable swapping.

I also have a good chunk of email on there which adds to the memory

So what features and quirkiness are lost to gain the lightweight speed
of such as lighttpd and nginx?

After many years of Apache, I could be persuaded to take a look ;-)

OK to run WordPress on those?

I don't need that much! I'm sure beers can be
exchanged/bartered/equivalents ;-)

The replacement I could go for is £17.40.
