    I'm getting these errors now too when somebody tries to do a search for a keyword and also a username at the same time...

    "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7 bytes) in /htdocs/search.php on line 442

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 43 bytes) in /htdocs/admin/db_mysql.php on line 77
    "

    What should I do? Change the php.ini memory allowance? Anything else? We average 400 - 500 users online at a time.

    Thanks,

        my memory_limit is set to 30M, but I get sometimes this error when using search.php

        How can I fix this?

        Best Regards

          With the information supplied we really wouldn't know how to fix it. We need to know what script you were using when you got the error, what the action was (posting, searching, etc...), what the server load was including available memory, version of PHP, number of users online and any other information you can give us about your server.

          That being said, how many search results do you have the system set to return?

            script: search.php
            action: searching in all forums for string: "die legende lebt"
            server load: hm, I don't know exactly, because a user reported that bug. But my loads are generally low, maybe 0.20
            users online: same as above, between 60 and 90 online
            php: 4.2.2
            the user made a screenshot: I will attach it.

              This is a limitation of the search system that won't be fixed until we switch to MySQL Full text searching.

              There are simply too many matches on one of the phrases.

                hm okay, so could you tell me when will you do this switch in search function? With Gold Version, or later? What can I tell my members? This error seems to occur often and did not happen with vb2.

                  I have followed carefully the instructions in this topic and I raise the memory limit to 16 MB

                  Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8 bytes) in /www/webconferencia.com.ar/htdocs/foros/includes/functions.php on line 2783

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

                    i just moved to a new server today and a ton of my users are reporting this error. fyi, i've only got 11 forums active, one extra member group (ontributing members), and no avatars or signatures. search is limited to moderators. no who's online for anyone.

                    i have not et changed php.ini -- i'm still working on moving the site over.


                    here are the errors our folks began reporting almost immediately after moving to the new (bigger, beter, dedicated) server:



                    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 737280 bytes) in /home/httpd/vhosts/thisboardrocks.com/httpdocs/forum/showthread.php(1628) : eval()'d code on line 335

                    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in Unknown on line 0


                    or...

                      You will need to edit php.ini to allow a larger memory size.

                        is 16 OK, or should i just go for more right off the bat?


                        did you ever figure out what is causing this? seems like the common thread is a new server.

                          Start with 16M and see if you still have this problem.

                            I'd just like to say a thankyou to the vBulletin Team..
                            Increasing the allowed memory size in php.ini fixed an error I was getting when trying to rebuild attachment thumbnails. Just goes to show that the search button is your friend..

                              I have read this thread but would greatly appreciate a bottom line netted out answer to fix the following error message that I am receiving:
                              Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 184320 bytes) in /home/httpd/vhosts/rebelarmy.com/httpdocs/forums/includes/functions_showthread.php on line 490

                              Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in Unknown on line 0
                              And please be specific. I don't have access to my server. Is this something that only the server can fix? I can't increase the memory size to 16 MB can I in the admin area? Dumb questions I know. But I'm a dummy.

                                you need root system admin privileges to edit php.ini on the server to increase memory limit to 16M and restart Apache

                                you'd need to contact your web host if you don't have access
