When trying to load Piwik install - SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 5 Out of memory (Needed 8388580 bytes)


#1

I have the most basic 3 websites and maybe a month of data and I’m already out of memory? Any suggestions for troubleshooting? Are there certain changes I can make to keep my memory usage more modest?


#2

I should add that on all 3 sites I am getting <5 unique visitors/day.

Your memory limit (8M) is very small, usually host configure with a default of 128M or 256M

I was told by my host these limits are with their “5 C Class IP” hosting package and they recommended switching to a VPS or dedicated server hosting package which has no such limits. They said the limits are described here:

I guess the 5C hosting is just better for cleaning up “footprints” on sites you don’t want linked together which also improves the SEO if you are linking the sites…

More detail on the limit I am encountering at Host Gator is shown here:
