Right now it is

Can you please increase it to at least 16mb? 64mb or more would be nice, but i need at least 16mb to run my applications. Thanks!

Thank you for your question canna!

We checked your php.ini on line 160 and the <strong>max_allowed_packet = 32m</strong>. You can edit this by going to your php.ini in your public_html and changing the value. Please see the following link on this.

The php.ini will need to be recursive to work in the subfolders. Please see the following link.

Also, the .htaccess has <strong>php_flag</strong> and <strong>php_value</strong> settings in there. These will be problematic on a SuPhp server because the directives are set in the php.ini not the .htaccess. You will want to comment these lines by adding a # in front of them on the line.

If these changes do not fix your errors, we will need steps to replicate the problem.
