    I have been looking around. Did you find the right autoblog hosting? I recently hosted my first autoblog and after a month, it says that the server lacks memory. I'm planning to shift to another hosting but I do consider the class-C IPs. Do you guys have any class-c ip hosting with good memory and bandwidth that you always use for your autoblogs? I could use some suggestions.

    Server lacks memory ? Is it a dedi ? I have some dedi's and my autoblogs and my customers autoblogs barely use any memory . I am talking about maybe 500 blogs on my servers .

    It was probably the plug-ins you was using or you did not configure something right. Some plugins can be extreme resource hogs and if you are serious about auto bloggin and making a business out of it you can not use resource extreme plugins . It just will not work.

    So if I was use I would figure out what you are doing wrong because honestly if I had someone sapping my resources I would definitely give them a refund and a back up and tell them later days.

    Actually most host do that anyway . Hostgator is notorious for doing that. Except without the refund and backup . They just tell you later days and leave it at that.

    What i am trying to say sounds like you need to learn WTH you are doing first.

    Yeah I know I still have a lot to learn that's why I'm on that stage of trying things out. I figured it might be the plugins since my autoblog have been going on and off. Some days its showing while some days it's not.

    If it might help. This is the error I'm getting
    Code:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/bringhea/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wpdbbackup/wp-db-backup.php on line 1138
    But I don't use hostgator. I am quite knowledgeable of their reputation.

    Yeah that is your problem right there . You might wanna get a dedi and host one or 2 blogs on it . As that may be all you could host :p No honestly though some of those can be trimmed down and there update frequency as well because I bet you have it to set some mad amount of post a day do you not? Wrong . That will do nothing but cause you problems.

    Seriously what you have like 5 content plugins ?Is that really needed? Hell no it is not. Get that crud out there.

    You can get rid of write again as well as it is not needed as well dupe content penalty is a myth.

    Oh man where to start . Set the frequency of how often you post down some a day as well . 3 post a day is fine . No more .

    Did you just randomly install plugins?

    No some of them are good . i am pulling your leg . Out of all honesty though trim em down all that is not needed.

    BTW I hereby dub you evilraven the server killer :)

    Haha okay thanks for the advice. I will start by removing the unneeded content plugins and trim down the posting.

    There are 2 tricks to increase the memory that can be used by a script if you don't have access to the php.ini.

    1.) Add:

    ini_set('memory_limit', '16M');

    at the top (below the <?php) of the php file that's causing the problem.

    2.) Add:

    php_value memory_limit 16M

    to your .htaccess

    You can adjust the numbers as you like.

    This trick will not always work. Depends on how intense the script is swallowing up the memory of the server.
    On some of my hosting the php memory limit was set to 32M and increasing it to 64M worked on most of them.

    Why 64M?
    I've got a Hostgator account with 64M and I never ran into memory problems with the same scripts there.

    Wow thanks a lot blackhit. I will follow your advice. It seems like the wp-db-backup.php is at fault here which is one of my plugins.

    Yes but it can also due to the memory usage of your other plugins...
    Sometimes, increasing memory limit does not work on mutalized hostings, in this case you have only a few solutions: get another hosting, or delete a few plugins you do not really need ;)
