Memory Limit Joomgallery

Postby Kanana21 » Wed Oct 14, 2009 8:35 am

Hi,

I try to upload pictures in Joomgallery via FTP upload, but, I get the following error :

Code: Select all

Memory limit exceeded. No further processing of the picture. Memory requirement:52 MByte (54219320) Serverlimit: 40MByte (41943040)


My picture is small 210kb so I don't understand.

I can't access to the php.ini file, so I tried to increase the memory limit in the .htaccess but I have an error page after and the website doesn't work. So, I removed this on the .htaccess.

Is there anything else I can do to sort this out?

Thanks

Kanana

Contact your host to set it to 64MB or 128MB.

PS: Memory limit is not regarding images but it's the memory available for your PHP script to run.
Maybe the script tries to generate thumbnails and does it need more memory for that process.

Thanks for the answer.

I contacted my hosting company and they told me, as I have a shared server, I can't increase the memory_limit to the value I want.

I tried to add in the .htaccess memory_limit = 128M or create a php.ini file in the website root with memory_limit = 128M but it's true that it doesn't change anything unfortunately.

Is there a way to set up joomgallery to use let resource, or, do you have another gallery to recommand ?

I am having the exact same issue. I really like Joomgallery but I have hit a wall with this error. I am BRAND NEW to joomla and this just makes it that much harder for me. I am also on a shared server and have the problem changing the MB. I hope that we can get this issue resolved.

I'm also having this issue. Being a programmer, I have no idea why such a small file would require such a gigantic amount of memory just to make a smaller copy. This is ridiculous!

Hi,

Ealier, I have created the thumbs myself, locally using xnview(free).
In Phoca gallery, I just upload these to "destination folder/_thumbs"
Works like a charm.

Havent tried it with jommlagallery though, but its worth a try.
