Annoyance: 1and1 shared hosting

In a follow up to “WordPress fatal error” I now know one of the THE MAIN problems!

My current previus host: 1and1, stated this:

Due to resource limits on our Shared Hosting machines, it is not possible to allocate more than 20M of memory to PHP, although phpinfo() may report a higher number. You will be unable to increase the memory usage limit with a php.ini file.

What does that mean? What kinda crap is that?

phpinfo MAY show more, but we really mean NOT!

phpinfo MAY show more, but we really mean NOT!

So, I may be moving over my personal sites ( which is about 10 ) to another host which doesn’t restrict my memory_limit to 20M. Because I can’t upload one photo over 1600×1200, that’s crap!

Hey 1and1, do something about this?
