Winston, can't you just have your own server? I mean literally your own server in the apartment or house you live. Then you could control everything and wouldn't have to rely on anyone.
That would be very expensive and I would not know how to fix or maintain it. Plus what about when I go abroad? Who will maintain it? You need to think man. :P

I thought you were a computer geek. You should be able to figure it out.

I know some things about computers. But I can't run or monitor a server remotely. what happens if it goes down or has a power outage? There are some problems that only someone with access to the hardware can fix. That's why you need a webhost. They have backup power generators in case of power outages. And technicians to fix the servers. No one knows everything about computers. There's too much to know.

Our server went down again today! It seems to happen every week now! But it didn't before. I don't get why. I talked to Bluehost support and all they would say is that I need more memory. But they wouldn't say what on my site would cause it to need more memory. This site has been operating for 10 years and there is nothing here that would cause a server to crash.

They showed me this server log screenshot though. What do you make of it? It just says the server ran out of memory but it didn't say why or what the cause was.

There's a memory leak, probably in one of the plugins you installed.

How do I track down the memory leak? If Bluehost can't do it, what can I do?

Do you think 2 GB RAM is not enough? They told me before that it was, now they say it isn't? That makes no sense.

Btw, here are some free online scanners to check for malware on your site if you need to.

http://scanner.pcrisk.com/

https://quttera.com/website-malware-scanner

https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

https://app.webinspector.com/

I've scanned my sites and they do not show any malware. So that doesn't appear to be the problem.

Maybe I should disable each plug in one at a time and see if that fixes the problem.

Bluehost looks incompetent. Based on your experience I would never sign up with them.

Why are they #1 in the reviews? They're crap.

Maybe it's just marketing

Yes well most of their positive reviews are probably from affiliates making commissions. And they spent a lot on marketing and YouTube videos too, to make it look like they are number one and know what they're doing and how they built their servers from scratch and know them better than any outside technician, etc. Their promo videos made them look like an honest caring mom and pop family business or something. lol

If you google "bluehost sucks" you will see there are lots of complaints about how Bluehost has really gone downhill.

It seems that one possibility is that Bluehost is deliberately crashing websites hosted on their servers in order to get them to upgrade to more expensive hosting plans, and telling them they need more memory, etc. Yet without any logical explanation as to why they need more memory. If so then that's a conspiracy and scam. And I'm surprised a Mormon company would do that. Also Bluehost used to be decent, but when they were bought by EIG, they went downhill along with all other EIG owned companies.

Earlier, Master said that every time he came here, he would get a message saying a script was running here that switched the location of the profiles from right to left, which came from an extension/plug in here. If that script runs every time a topic page is viewed here, then could that be the one that's causing the memory drain?

These are the extensions and plug ins I have installed. Do any of them sound like they could cause a memory leak?
