    I'm not sure if it's just me - but lately I'm having a problem merging a list of keywords (about 250k) with a custom footprint. It used to work fine on a 512mb ram, now it crashes on 1gb...

    I will try to reboot the server now, but it feels like a bug...

    I would suggest you split the list to smaller parts and then try.

    Well, I've tried that - no go! I even re-installed the SB - still the same...

    I've sent several reports, but got no reply. I guess I'd have to re-install my vps OS, but I'm not looking forward to do that...plus I'd really like to know if it's the problem with my setup or the current version of SB.

    OK, got it down to about 80k and it did the merge, but it's extremely sluggish to set up the harvesting session, maybe the minimum requirement of ram went up...frustrating!

    you need at least 2 gb ram and a fast processor for what you want to do with scrapebox

    Thanks guys, it looks like that's what's been happening! When you merge - the number of keywords in the list gets multiplied by the number of lines in the footprint file, so now I combined and split my keywords into 50k chunks and it shows 550k combined! No wonder my vps couldn't handle it :D

    I also need more space - it looks like 10GB is not enough. Am I a cheap bastard? You bet! But seriously, I probably need a cheap managed dedi as I have no clue how to maintain it, or a very good vps on fast connection. I think I outgrew my training wheels already.

    Actually - if my connection was better - I could run my own rig, unfortunately it's a one horse town...
