It says that it ran out of memory!. What I don't know if it is out of memory on the host machine or on the shinyapps.io.

I understand that I am using a free version of the shinyapps.io and plan to buy a paid version but wanted to be sure if is because of running out of memory on shinyapps.io

This problem occurs when your application attempts to use more memory than is available to it.

As indicated in the Shinyapps.io User Guide, you can solve this issue by increasing the instance size and running your application again.

If the problem persists even after you increase to maximum instance size (1 GB for free accounts), you need to upgrade your account.


Thanks a lot for the response. I understand where the problem lies. I guess we would need to upgrade our account and we are lookout for the same. Once again thanks a lot for the response !!
