Please note:  Dropstore Plugin setup checks memory allocated and not just overall memory. Just available memory allocated for the plugin. Your web host allocates initial memory, however memory is constantly being used by other processes running in Woocommerce. Dropstore processes run on a schedule of every 10 minutes.

Internal Server 500: Dropstore Plugin requires 250 MB to run, in an event where system does not have the amount of memory allocated, you may experience 500 internal server error. You can also view details in Woocommerce > Status > Logs and filter for most recent information.
This is because you may have some other processes running in the background i.e other plugins, woocommerce processes, and Dropstore plugin run at a time when others are running, resulting in limited availability of allocated memory. processes wont run forever. Dropstore processes runs on a schedule. (every 10 minutes).

How to Fix:
1. Upgrade Server - contact your host to upgrade your server which typically comes with more memory.
2. Allocate more memory to your Woocommerce website ( you are able to find videos on Youtube to assist- "How to Increase Woocommerce memory) or checkout:

For plugin update, merchants should:

1. Deactivate then delete old installed version
2. Upload new plugin
3. Activate new plugin

Note on Divi Theme Builder Compatibility:

It's essential to be aware that the plugin might encounter conflicts with the Divi Theme Builder. To successfully integrate the plugin into your site, consider following these steps: Firstly, install an alternative theme, then proceed to upload the plugin. Once the plugin is uploaded, reactivate Divi to ensure a seamless integration. This process can help mitigate potential conflicts and ensure the smooth functioning of both the plugin and the Divi Theme Builder on your website.
