Installs fail due to PHP memory requirements
|Reported by:||MichaelH||Owned by:||anonymous|
Beginning with 2.3, have run into a number of installations that fail due to not having enough memory allocated to PHP. Typically, increasing PHP memory to 16M (from 8M) solves the problem. Should the requirements be revised to reflect this?
The error presented is either an Internal Server Error 500 or a Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted.
As an example, with the host doteasy.com, a request to increase PHP memory must be addressed to their support department before WordPress can be installed.
