Hi Pierre,

Memory usage seems very high on your server compared to the number of users.
Actually, I checked on an OwnCloud server on my own with roughly the same number of users and found 430MB for RAM Usage.
Are you sure you're talking about used memory ? Debian uses cache memory to 90% of the system memory but it's not really used and can be allocated to applications.
What does a 'top' command return in your case ? (you have to look at the ' -/+ buffer/cache' line)
