Thanks for the reply! I really appreciate the feedback.
I set the memory_limit to1024M. I did NOT restart any services that use PHP because it seems all I need that much memory for is the cron jobs. If any of the services that use PHP (apache, phpmyadmin …) do restart for whatever reason it should be fine, I have a fairly beefy server running 32 GB of RAM and 8 cores on AWS.
When you say “limit the number of items in the queue” I assume you’re referring to the --batch=x, --limit=x and min/max id options? I’ve looked at those but honestly, the Mautic docs on those are a little confusing.
I actually use sudo and not root. Otherwise it would not run and I’d get permission denied errors.
I don’t know if this is appropriate or allowed here? But would you be available for a little bit of private consulting on some of this Mautic stuff?
