We signed up for a trial with the SharePoint 2013 farm. The idea is that we can use it for customer demos, conference presentations, and generally playing around with. It works just fine when created out of the box, but it's a bit slow due to the 8GB limit. Because the trial comes with an additional 8GB, we tried changing the SQL Server to 4GB and the SharePoint Server to 11GB but that causes any site collections to break and display an internal error 500 when trying to view the page.
Has anyone run into this before? Any idea what might be causing it, and how to fix it?
