I keep getting the message: "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 30720 bytes)" during my Silverstripe installation. I've already set the PHP memory limit to 64 MB in my php.ini file, and I can't figure out why I keep getting this error.

Also, for some reason, the phpinfo.php file lists my memory limit as 124 MB instead of 64. Does anybody know what might be wrong?

Try replacing the Browsercap.ini file in Sapphire - Misc with the file i have here

Also, have you created a silverstripe-cache folder in the root directory?

Then do db/build?flush=1 to clear the cache,etc...

We were getting the same problem. Our host limits the ini_set so this was the only work around.

Hope this works for you.
