I came to Dreamhost to host my year old WP blog (about 150 Posts) Dreamhost claims that it is one click install. I tried to import and I got an error and this is what I got back after 2-3 days:

From the looks of it, it appears you’ve reached the php memory limit.
What you will need to do is create a custom php.ini and modify the
memory_limit and perhaps the post_max_size. Unfortunately we do not
provide technical support for creating custom php.ini files, so if you
are not familar with this, please visit this wiki:

Also, I wholeheartedly recommend going to our forums and asking for help:

I’m sure there’s many Dreamhost customers that are willing to help you.
Good luck!

Thanks!

Chih

I am an amateur at all of this I went to the wiki and got this:

The instructions provided in this article or section are considered advanced.

You are expected to be knowledgeable in the UNIX shell.
Support for these instructions is not available from DreamHost tech support.

I feel like I just threw away $100+ dollars and a week of my life on this company can anyone help me resolve this?
DreamHost will no longer respond to my emails.

Thanks in advance.

Once is enough. Please don’t double post (or quadruple, in your case).
