In response to my article 1&1 = 3.
Marc found this interesting note in the FAQ section of 1 & 1 :
Can the memory usage limit be increased on shared hosting with a php.ini file?
Due to resource limits on our Shared Hosting machines, it is not possible to allocate more than 20M of memory to PHP, although phpinfo() may report a higher number. You will be unable to increase the memory usage limit with a php.ini file.
Very cool note 🙂 Especially when you are check the memory limit via your PHP script. Time to change the hoster…
