    Hello! What would you guys recommend to run FL with more than 20 accounts? Soon, many more.
    I'm struggling to complete all daily tasks.

    Recently I followed this tip from the official FL guide:

    The tasks are not being executed or reaching their daily limits. What is going on?:

    9. You are running too many accounts. If you run too many accounts than the capacity of your computer and internet connection can handle, the daily limits will not to be reached. Solution: Go to File->General->Settings, uncheck the "Enable activity logging" box, set "Account Threads" to 20, set "Automation Interval" to 1-2 seconds. After that, go to the wizard, reduce all the "Task Limits" to 1-1. If this doesn't work, you may have to divide the accounts into groups and place them on different computers.

    I run 3 instances of FL 24/7 in a virtual machine:
    1. Follow and like
    2. Unfollow and like
    3. Post
    I'm thinking of adding 2 more:
    1. Follow and like (20 accounts)
    2. Follow and like (next 20 accounts)
    3. Unfollow and like (20 accounts)
    4. Unfollow and like (next 20 accounts)
    5. Post

    Does that make any sense? How would you do it?

    Thanks!

    What proxys are you actually using? Internet connection should not be the problem if you are using it. I remommend switching to massplanner, way more easy and automated in my opinion :)

    It doesn't matter how many instances of the software you run on the same computer. They are all using the same computer and resources. If your computer can't handle more than 20 threads for example, you can't have 2 instances of the software running 20 threads each.

    Ahhh! I thought it would work separately on a per instance level. Thanks. More instances don't make a difference then.

    Basically that means my only option would be adding a new virtual machine with a new FL's license? :-/

    One of two reasons:
    1. The speed of the proxies is not good. You should check proxy speed and contact instantproxies for replacement of those aren't running fast.
    2. Your personal compuer or VPS RAM is low. What is the RAM of your computer?

    I was running a "1 vCPUs, 3.75 GB" with Google Cloud and upgraded yesterday to a "2 vCPUs, 7.5 GB". Hopefully that'll help.
    Thanks for your recommendations.

    I am not an expert. I am a starter with VPS and have completely no practical knowledge with Proxies. All I wrote was from my reading here.
