Hi! I've checked the forums and increased the memory to 64M using a PHP.INI-file in the same directory as config.php. But then I got stuck with the message below.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 19456 bytes) in /silverstripehome/cms/code/Newsletter/NewsletterType.php on line 75

I tried to store a PHP.INI in the Newsletter directory, but that just doesn't cut it.
Any clues?

8388608 bytes == 8Mb which means that your memory setting isn't working. The normal way of setting this is in your .htaccess file. Add the following line to the top of the file:

php_value memory_limit 128M

to set it to 128Mb. If that doesn't work you may try to set it in sapphire/main.php but I don't remember the function name to set it using php. Search
