Will memory_limit = 24M cause problems?

Post by Mercury » Fri Dec 17, 2010 9:38 pm

In the documentation you specify memory_limit = 64M. My free hosting account at byethost.com has a PHP memory_limit = 24M. Will this cause any problems when installing or using phpMyFAQ 2.6?

This is my first attempt at installing PHP software so if I seem inept please excuse me. Thank you for your help.

Hi,

yes, this can be a problem when you want to export FAQs as PDFs.

Hi Thorsten,

I successfully installed the software so that part of my question is answered.

I have an issue that’s unrelated to the memory limit so I’ll create a new thread for that. If I get that sorted out I’ll come back here and report on what effect the memory limit has on PDF files.

Based on what you say Thorsten I assume that what I observed below is caused by a PHP memory_limit = 24M at byethost. Since this is free hosting I can’t complain. I can live with these limitations.

These actions in Exports of phpMyFAQ admin do not work:
  • Generate PDF file
  • Make Docbook file
These actions in Exports of phpMyFAQ admin do work:
  • Make XML file
  • Make XHTML file
These actions in front end do not work:
  • Open or download PDF file (by clicking PDF icon)

Hi,

thanks for the feedback. Luckily we removed the DocBook XML export in 2.6. ;-)

Happy new year!
