Increase / add swap space on EasyEngine

EasyEngine provides you with 1GB of swap space by default, but sometimes you’d like a little bit more. Here is how you can increase the swap space:

Edit /etc/dphys-swapfile and set the following:

CONF_SWAPSIZE=2000
CONF_MAXSWAP=2000

Run:

dphys-swapfile swapoff
dphys-swapfile setup
dphys-swapfile swapon

That’s it! Verify your new swap space with htop or top
