    Our web host recently shut down our entire site because the aMember cron page ( amember/cron.php ) was using too many server resources. The sysadmin tells me:

    (Our cron job had been set to trigger the page once every hour, FYI.)

    Unfortunately, we had to remove the amember/cron.php file from our web space in order to convince our web host to reactivate the account. I realize that this may mean that many of aMember's functions are now no longer taking place. How can I restore things so that (a) the vital functions of aMember continue to go on and (b) multiple cron jobs do not run simultaneously, thereby getting us shut down by our host?

    We are currently running:

    aMember 3.2.4PRO
    PHP 5.3.10 (cgi-fcgi)
    OS Linux
