I have already gone to the developer for support, and his only suggestion was for me to ask someone else, so here I am.
Basically my server runs fine with Xenforo and a host of addons.
When I enable Notifications by Gritter, my dedicated server crashes. CPU and memory use immediately climbs upward until it kills the server. When I disable the addon the numbers immediately go back down to normal.
The developer said that he has seen this before, and the person moved to a different shared hosting environment and all was well. That's not as feasible for me, especially considering that everything else on my server is working fine. I can edit server configuration settings, but no such suggestions were made.
Since this addon works for most everyone else, the developer doesn't seem too concerned about my issue. I do understand the frustration, having one person with a problem, but well ... being that person ... I just want to see if it can work for me like it does for everyone else that purchased it.
To the developer's credit, he did offer a refund, but I want the functionality instead.
Any ideas on how I can correct this, or what would cause this one addon to crash my server?
Thanks in advance.
