    Has anybody else had this issue?

    My private server on dreamhost is going down every hour or so due to massive memory overuse spikes.

    I've got about 30 sites on the account, and haven't done anything major on the account for several weeks.

    I humbly ask for help regarding this.

    I had an issue with GoDaddy regarding WP blogs and had to cancel the hosting in the end, it was due to their windows server issues.

    Equally I had wp sites going down with a particular sitemap add on which was hungry for memory, so if you have changed any plugins, particularly sitemap generators, its worth trying one that may be a bit lighter.
