I currently have more than 1000 visits / day and hosting at 1and1 with PHP memory 30MB limit I have a dynamic shopping guide with more than 5000 items and users enter to browse / search for items. I started getting "Internal Error 500" every now and then. Which are show more on days, and I don't notice them on others. 1and1 support say that I have outgrown the 30MB PHP limit. What do you think? Is that true? or they just want to sell me a more expensive hosting? I currently can't afford more than a shared host :(

I am using PHP / MySQL Javascript / My BB Forum / PHP thumbail (which I am now trying to switch with static thumbnails to ease the load a bit) Advice is appreciated


Sounds possible... You'll have to find out which parts of your code break the limit. It's well possible you can help this by optimizing the code.

I have moved to another hosting "Blue Host" and the errors stopped ever since. It seems they handle the resources in a different way: "CPU throttling". And they told me I can use their services till I feel the website is slow and I then should switch to VPS or dedicated server. 1and1 handle the overload on shared limits with error 500. This is not good!
