As requirements change from website to website @mazeheld mentioned there can’t be an official recommendation while @mikeschroder is the opinion that we should give a recommendation with the remark that the requirement changes the more plugins and themes are installed and used. @mikeschroder suggested checking with hosts to get their average memory usage for WP so we might get at least a feeling about the consumption.
