Hello everyone,

I've read the forums on this fatal error and tried putting ini_set('memory_limit', '64M'); in sapphire/main.php but my site still says:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 232 bytes)...

I've even tried increasing the memory_limit in php.ini to 64M but it's still not solving this problem!

Everything was working fine for the past few weeks and now it's saying this! Is there anything I can do to fix this??? This site was JUST launched publicly a few days ago so a lot of people are now coming to the site and seeing this.

What can I do?? Thanks..

Ok, I may have fixed this the wrong way, but i included:

ini_set('memory_limit', '64M');

within sapphire/_config.php

As soon as I did that it worked.

If you have access to the .htaccess file, try adding

php_value memory_limit 64M

(or even more) to it. If you don't have, try searching


in all your silverstripe files and replace all values to the correct ones ;) try also adding ini_set('memory_limit', '64M'); to your mysite/_config.php file
