The file manager isn't loading and shows the following error;

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 56098816) (tried to allocate 17152 bytes) in /framework/filesystem/GD.php on line 32

I've had a look on the forums, and the closest I could find was someone saying they had trouble saving pages. They managed to fix it by setting a memory rule in htaccess, but I get a 500 error when I try this.

Is there anything I can do, or is it one for the hosting guys?

[i/framework/filesystem/GD.php on line 32

GD is the graphics library and it is more than likely that it is a problem with the image itself. I've had this when there are either really really large images being turned into thumbnails, or when the uploaded image is corrupt itself.

Great, thanks.

Is there any way you can set file validation for the file manager without making your own extention? The documentation seems a bit vauge on this front.
