Using the UpdateMembershipRecord script on my dreamhost account,
well, is a bit of a problem. It seems that the process gets killed
before it can complete its task.
Is there some way I can tweak the script and/or my php.ini settings
so that it doesn't break . A copy of the response I got back from
dreamhost support is below.
Any help would be appreciated.
ps - system details
PHP INFO as configured for the account is @ https://
Drupal - Version 5.1
CiviCRM - Ver 1.6.8703
