Depending on your server configuration, amount of images uploaded and a host of other configuration options, you may encounter:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to
allocate 71 bytes) in /home/moroccob/public_html/wp-admin/includes/misc.php
on line 278
This error happens 99% of the time on shared hosting setups. Shared hosting generally allocates 33-66MB of RAM to your server. By way of comparison, this is about 20-30x LESS memory that the average desktop machine has in total. This amount of memory is extremely limiting for a WordPress installation in general, but add to that a complex plugin like AWPCP, plus a little bit of traffic and things get much worse.
The reality is that you should consider upgrading to a VPS, dedicated server or add some memory to your shared hosting plan, as this range of memory doesn't work well with AWPCP and WordPress under a small load of traffic.
We recommend that you run AWPCP on a site with a minimum of 128MB of RAM and a reasonable amount of disk (1G is good) space and CPU availability for the traffic you intend to support. Shared hosting most often doesn't meet these goals (e.g. Dreamhost, Bluehost, GoDaddy shared hosting are all examples of hosts that highly limit the RAM and CPU).
We recommend using hosting that has VPS support so you can manually scale the resources to meet your needs, or use a dedicated WP hosting company. WPEngine is a good (premium) solution if you have the budget: http://wpengine.com
UPDATE: If you are running on a VPS server, your overall RAM setting isn't the problem anymore, it's your php.ini setting for the memory used per PHP execution thread. This article can help you override that with settings: http://www.inmotionhosting.com.....e-exausted
