No one here is shaming you for helping. We're just letting you know that what you're preaching is bad practice. Yes, a lot of people do develop on their virtual servers, some in fact have no other choice but to. But realistically, it's bad practice. A virtual server shouldn't be used for production, only running the product. Do as you want though, obviously.
Like it says clearly but surely as day:
I think people need to read it a bit better at what I'm trying to help with first before saying their parts.
Non of this extra program shit was needed, no sql was needed, it was good times.
And for the record, by any means I ain't here trying to pick a fight. I do have rights to speak my opinions to and state my point, love to all

Tbh not sure what's wrong with this thread.
All he did is teach people how to speed up their IDE and people (as usual) are giving things a new turn.
Even if it is a bad habit coding on a vps, that's not the point he is tryna tell, maybe you hop on ur vps quickly to do a few changes and then hop off, who knows. And maybe u dont know how to use git or don't want to learn because there's many lazy people I see that don't.
Anyways who cares. I could probably use this thread for my pc too when it's slow. Not all of us have good lappys.
That's not really the point, though. The point is that people in RSPS /don't/ use virtualization for that purpose, generally. What is infinitely more common is people renting cheap Windows virtual servers and then using them as both a development and production environment. They'll be running their live server through things like Eclipse debug mode because they don't know any better.
I feel like I am repeating myself. Again: there is a big difference between using a VM that you can snapshot, distribute to your coworkers, etc, and misusing some Windows VPS that you've rented.
I'm also contracted at London Stock Exchange who use a different VM, I can screenshot the specs if you are curious on Monday when I'm in the office. Their machines are SHIT.
As for your points:
1. It's not uncommon for people to code on their VPSs in the RSPS world. We see it all the time and the OP is a prime example. And yeah I agree with your point that it is because they don't know better.
2. Snapshots etc., is no longer a problem. Most providers allow snapshotting (e.g. GoDaddy, Heroku, Google Cloud, OVH, ) if that's what you need and they support up-scaling. Additionally, you're not abusing a VPS by installing Eclipse/Intellij and developing on it.
Performance isn't terrible, Eclipse especially doesn't really lag on the low spec machines (from experience). Intellij can be tuned.
I have no issue with people coding on their VPS and running their servers through their IDE's especially if they have the resources to do so.
I'll accept some real counter arguments if people wish to provide that is applicable to current RSPS owners and their current processes.
Otherwise, let's end the conversation here.

And then again, none of us have to purchase a bigger vps. In this persons particular case, they are looking to have around 10 players active. Do you really need a 4gb+ vps to manage this? Not really...
If you had 1000 players I'd say start upgrading to bigger plan but if your project isn't going to host a lot of players, whats the big deal then.
