What do "Physical Memory Usage" and "Virtual memory usage" mean and how to prevent it from going up? I also want to know what is the difference between virtual memory usage and physical memory usage in cPanel?

Physical memory is the actual ram on the server the 8GB-16GB-32GB or whatever it may be, virtual memory is memory stored on the hard drive its usually used when ram is maxed mostly on virtual servers.

A note too, unless this is a VPS it looks like the server may be running cloudlinux and you are limited to 1024 MB of physical RAM. Most WHM/cPanel servers are going to have more than 1GB of RAM
