    My Autoblogs tend to use a lot of server memory. Is there a way around that ?

    I try to keep the plugins to a minimum, only 5 or so per site. I use Wordpress.

    You can use one of the caching tools available for Wordpress, in all honesty your best bet is to have a decent dedicated server.

    I have 5 on one shared server which is ok, resources not hit too bad, and on another VPS I have 30+ which is a complete nightmare.

    The VPS is getting really hit. It has nowhere near the power of the shared server, but they made me move the blogs off the shared server.. they told me the VPS would be unlimited, but its maxed out all the time. Its pretty annoying.

    On VPS, you must be able to optimize your sites because of the memory limitation not like shared hosting where you only limited by CPU load. Always use caching plugins and monitor IO resource because the bottleneck using caching most often is on HDD.

    Use the WP SuperCache plugin - I was always getting my hosting acocunt suspended cos I was using more than my allocated CPU % - after adding this plugin and setting it up, my CPU useage came down drastically - to the point where I could add another 10 autoblogs before it came close to max CPU use agian - it really makes a huge difference. Can't give you the link cos I can't paste URLs yet, but you will find it on the main wordpress site under plugins >> wp super cache

    If you are using VPS, the best plugin that utilizes the server power would be W3 Total Cache. WP Supercache only caching page, not caching database.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/

    The best settings are: Minified - APC, Page Caching - disk enhanced, Database Caching - APC.

    For faster performance, use nginx + php-fpm instead of apache
