  • Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted

    After I do work on my forum, such as exporting attachments or when I did the thumbnails, I get this error,

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2 bytes) in [full path to]/forums/includes/functions_postbit.php(437) : eval()'d code on line 21

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

    Is this indicative of a bigger problem, or will it happen only when I do this huge work?? I had to reboot the server.

    I get this error quite often, which is odd, since the server is awesome and should easily have enough memory to run the board.

      Mine is too, well it's a 2.ghz with 1 gb of memory. Surely enough to run ONE forum, right? (which is all I have). My forum isn't even that huge, around 80 on line at a time, and 2500 members.

        open php.ini

        look for
        memory_limit = 8M

        change this to

        memory_limit = 16M

        You'll find that a few things are memory intensive, rather than processor intensive. Increasing the limit and restart apache will fix this.

        Note: You need to restart Apache after making any changes to php.ini.

            Stupid question, but where does one find php.ini? I can't seem to locate it.

              in shell type

              locate php.ini

              it varies depending on operating system and path PHP was installed to.

                Hum... well now I get this error,

                Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /[path to]/forums/includes/functions_forumslist.php on line 62

                Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

                Do I need MORE memory allocated??

                              I realize you guys are busy, but it's been 2 weeks since I pm'ed access to my server and I've not heard anything back.

                              Can anyone help with this? I'm not the only getting them, and I am still getting these. I feel like I'm talking to myself here, and I've talking longer than Fidel Castro on a May day speech.
