    The X10 server was down for the last two days. Ever since it has started working again, the nextsript app is not working because the 64 MB memory for php required by the version 3.3.4 is not allowed by x10. Has x10 changed the configurations recently? Nevertheless, I find the free users don't have access to php.ini file so the settings can't be changed. Is there any working around? Is there any point sending a request to X10 team for increasing the memory limits for PHP? Or, is it endgame X10? Please speak from your experience. Thanks.

    Free Hosting users will NEVER have access to php.ini; not only is it server-wide, there is no way in the world that they're going to give you access to enable features that are deliberately disabled for security reasons. (And "security" includes "not allowing users to get the server blacklisted by doing anything stupid to other servers".) If the current config provides less than 64MB (per account, all processes), then the config is wrong and will change. Since you've mentioned "the last two days", that means your account was on either Level or Vox, and they have not yet announced that the migration is complete. Barring any PHP version conflicts, if your site was working before, it will work again -- once the migration is completed.

    If, on the other hand, your script requires 64MB per process and you have multiple concurrent users, then Free Hosting isn't for you. (That's a general comment, not directed at the OP.) One needs to be careful in determining exactly what a software vendor/provider means by their "minimum requirements". Sometimes the specs they give mean "you should be able to run with this effectively", and sometimes they mean "if you don't have this, it won't run at all".

    @essellar

    Thanks for the reply. My website is not working once again, so, probably, you are right that the migration is not complete. I hope the script to work once it is compete. BTW the nextscripts apps says that the max memory allowed is 40 mb and they require 64 mb (not for a single process, single process doesn't require more than 6-7 mb, they just require a cap of no less than 64 mb, which may as well include other processes; and there are no multiple concurrent users). Yes, they mean, "if you don't have this, it won't run at all".[/quote]
