I just upgraded my MT DV base server to have an additional 256 MB of RAM, this upgrade will give me a 512 MB of dedicated memory. That cost’s me $77 in total and a recurring monthly charge of $40 a month + hosting fee. All in all, it’s gonna be a $82 hosting cost for my sites per month, whew!

I thought I won’t be needing an upgrade. After installing APC, I was able to get rid of my memory problems for probably about a week. Then came yesterday, the site stalls again and gave me numerous memory failures.
