I'm (as you will soon see) completely new to server management and apache. Anyways,

I have a VPS account that has 256MB ram and 1GIG burst.

I was told that I am exceeding my privvmpages, and told to look at "TOP".

I see a list of processes running and what they are using, but I have no clue what this all means.

I do see a lot of MYSQL and APACHE entries. So what exactly does this mean? For each user an instance of MYSQL & APACHE is created (assuming every page has DB calls)?
