Disabling python?

I’m wondering on downgrading to vps with 256mb of real memory. Actually VM ‘eats’ average 600-750mb of ram, but many system processes are multiplied (like 8 apache’s processes, 4 python’s etc). I’m not sure if 256 MB of ram will be enough, so I could disable python, because I’m not using it. How can I do it? There isn’t any info in FAQ about that


If you’re seeing Python processes running, chances are that was Mailman you saw. You could disable the Mailman feature in Virtualmin, and then turn off the Mailman service.

There’s a document here on run things on a low-memory server:
