Support » Plugin: SendPress Newsletters » SP Hangs When Sending Emails

  • Resolved hsfcwebmaster


    I’m attempting to send slightly less than 100 emails per batch less than once a week. The send process hangs after sending approximately 35 – 37 emails. I click ‘Close’ on the window and my site crashes and in unavailable for several seconds. I then have to repeat the process 2 – 3 more times to complete sending all of the queued emails.

    GoDaddy is the hosting provider and the Godaddy checkbox is checked on the Settings > Sending page.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for providing the support information in the ticket. I do have ideas as to what might be the problem, but let me first start by letting you know that you you’re to be on Go Daddy’s older servers. You can tell by the fact that you were running such an old version of MySQL. You may want to ask them to upgrade you to a newer server.

    In order to solve your current problem, I believe you need to do one or both of the following.

    Request that Go Daddy allow you to increase the memory allocated to WordPress. Currently it is set at 40 MB, which is very very low. There may be a configuration in your WordPress config file that will allow you to do that yourself, but they may have also set it in a way you can’t change it without opening a support request.

    The other thing you should try is going to settings and then the advanced tab. On that tab you’ll find some advance settings for changing how many messages are sent per cron execution. The default was 25. If your site is having problems with the default, you could try lowering that number. You should also enable auto cron and not click send emails now, which will smooth out the sending.

    itdoug… Thank you very much for the reply. I increased the WP memory to 128MB in wp-config.php. I’ll also experiment with the auto cron option; that sounds like a perfect solution. Thanks again!
