    We built this website on a network solutions hosting account and had trouble from the beginning. How it's nearly unresponsive. I tried to change some memory stuff in the php.ini file added then manually deleted a w3 cache plugin and stressed a lot.. any ideas anyone?

    php.ini file:
    memory_limit = 256M ;

    changed the htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress
  2. network solutions hosting account...

    That's the problem. See Recommended WordPress Web Hosting

    I think it's more then that. They host thousands of websites. I believe its something to do with my files.

    unfortunately changing hosts is not an option. I need a technical solution to get my website back up and running.. It's now crashed.

    If you are currently using a poor hosting company or are on a badly over-crowded server, there is not a great deal that we can offer to help.

    Let's say it was not the host, what would you do to rule it out. I am kinda freaking out a little.

    If it was me, the first thing I would so is strip the site of all plugins and switch to the default 2012 theme. That should give you the lightest possible server load. So initially, I'd suggest that you try:

    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    I'd also suggest that you try checking your site's error logs for error messages. Your hosts should be able to help you in accessing your site's error logs.
