  • Sadly, this plugin is incompatible with 3.0.3 (turning both postviews and akismet causes WSOD).

    It works fine for me. The reason you are getting WSOD is because your WordPress (as a whole) is using more memory than what is set in the PHP limit. Contact your host.

    If you get a white screen, the web server is likely hiding the true error. Take a look at the web server and PHP error logs to see what is happening.

    Where exactly should I look in PHPMyadmin? Or is it somewhere in cPanel? Anyway, I also noticed that the same happens for WP-PostViews and WP-Print.

    Also, I actually use less plugins and less memory now than before the upgrade to 3.0.3, so I doubt memory is the true culprit here. I’m nowhere near as advanced as you guys, so I might be wrong.

    cPanel probably has access to the logs you need. You may need to ask your hosting provider for help, explain what happened and that you are looking for more information in the error logs.

    It could be a memory error, or it could be any number of other errors. Until you’ve found error log entry for when that happens it is hard to tell what is going on.

    You guys were apparently right, from the log it seems it was the php memory limit after all. I got plenty of errors similar to the one below (for various plugins):

    [Sat Dec 11 00:43:40 2010] [error] [client XX.XXX.XX.XX] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 798980 bytes) in /home/halibutt/public_html/wp-admin/includes/admin.php on line 40, referer:

    I checked and my host offers only 32M of memory, which is close to peak usage of my site (typically it’s around 29, but apparently it jumps up every now and then. Do you think enlarging it to 64M might solve the White Screen of Death problem once and for all?

    Upping to 64MB should at least take care of the specific errors your seeing currently.
