    Help!!! Just killed my entire blog farm!!!!:eek::eek::eek:
    Need some help fast!

    What happened:

    I run wordpress for all my sites under 1 server. My largest site was having memory problems (standard wp not enough memory) so I went into my WHM and clicked on PHP Configuration Editor. Then I changed the Memory Limit from 32MB to 128MB. All my sites then went down with a 500 Internal service error. I have sites on different ips and everything is down! I even changed the the memory limit on the php configuration editor back to 32MB and there all still down.

    Please Help asap. Everything is down!

    hm.. did you try to restart apache? if that did not work, the box?
    if that was the only broken thing, it should fix by itself once you put the value back to 32 and restart. let me know - we can look at it.

    or all blog change wpconfig.php (please test one blog)

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '32M');

    define('max_execution_time', '30');

    define('max_input_time', '30');

    require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');

    i dont know default max_input_time but 30-50 work it

    Still down guys. Freaking out about now. One thing I believe triggered the crash was that I changed the php.ini file on my server from 32M to 128MB. I put in MB and it should have been M. I changed it back to 32M and now the sites are back up without the 500 Service error. The sites now show the classic WP Out of memory (allocated 23330816) (tried to allocate 116 bytes) in ... F ME

    See if you can read your error logs. They should tell you why the 500 is coming up. It could be as simple as the permissions you have on a file/files.
    You should probably also be restarting apache and/or mysql depending on the changes you're making (apache main config? vhost? .htacces?)
    In any case the host should be able to tell how to fix it from the logs

    Yes just a memory error. I was told my the IT guy in the ticket it was a "premature"(Thats just great) failure that was showing up on every ip. What happened was when I change the mem usage on my whm the sites all crashed and became well stuck. After 3 hours of my sites being down (and losing money) the IT Admin just increased the memory and everything came back up. This took 2 attempts. I did read through the logs, but I am no expert on this. I also reboot my server and mysql. Either way im back up and happy..
