Increase memory_limit

Post by hstrindb » Sun 6. Nov 2011, 07:27


The default setting 32MB is not enough for drupal. After updating MAMP local drupal installations doesn't work until one the memory_limit is increased. I suggest 256MB as the default value. But this is hard to remember since one updates MAMP not too often and it takes a while to find out why nothing works.

Thanks for MAMP!

You can set this in your .htaccess:

Code: Select all

php_value memory_limit 256M
But a default of 256M is insanely high.

Thanks for the tip. Where exactly would I add this parameter? Would it go in the htaccess file that is located at the top level of each domain's main directory, or would I put it at the top level of the htdocs folder itself?

Also, would I write something like this?:

# Increase PHP memory
php_value memory_limit 128M
