Re: Can’t install Buddypress coz of memory limit on my server. WHAT TO DO???
There are better ways of expressing the sentiments in your last post read it back to yourself.
BP and WPMU are not apps I would consider running on what I presume is shared hosting, in fact if I had a shared hosting account trotting along nicely and I found out that the host was allowing people to run sites built on BP I would be off like a shot rather than hang around waiting for the inevitable server loads to become intolerable. I agree 64MB is a lot of script memory for php to need but the fact that WP might run in 32MB is neither here nor there BP is a much more intensive app, more than simply a plugin extension or WP. HAving said all that I maintain my own linux VDS for testing various work and sites on and that has the script memory limit set to 32MB and is happily running a full installation of WPMU + BP and a few plugins, it isn’t a active site though and it’s a dedicated server not shared hosting with many accounts consuming resources which I would guess is why you are immediately running into issues.
BP is best run on a dedicated server or virtual dedicated, that sadly is about all that can be said n the matter, perhaps not ideal from your point of view, but why not change to a VDS? they can be found for a good monthly price.
