[ERROR]Allowed memory size (bytes exhausted) (5 posts)

    I am trying to get an automatic backup to schedule on a weekly basis, to backup my database and files.

    The filesize is 260MB and I keep getting the following error in my logs:

    2011/08/03 21:18.54: [ERROR]Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261467347 bytes)

    Does anyone know what I need to modify to get it to work? The files are supposed to go to my Dropbox account.

    Do I need to modify something in my php.ini or .htaccess files?

    i have something similar. for some reason the creation of the zip file works, but uploading the (180mb file) to dropbox somehow fails:

    2011/08/07 00:18.42: 1. Versuche Datensicherungsdatei zur Dropbox zu senden ...

    2011/08/07 00:18.43: 1. Skript-Stop! Wird jetzt wieder neu gestartet!

    why does the dropbox upload needs that much time. is it possible to call the upload from a different script to save memory? or maybe split big zip files during upload?

    cheers!

    I've even tried adding this to the top of wp-config.php
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '300M');

    I've also uploaded the following php.ini file to my WP root aswell as inside wp-admin:
    memory_limit = 300M

    But I just keep getting the following error messages:

    Memory increased from 256M to 256M
    2011/08/15 13:22.32: [ERROR]Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261352890 bytes)

    I really don't get why it tries to increase the memory limit to 256M (from 256M!?)

    Hello,

    I am also getting this error trying to backup all files to Dropbox. The backup file DOES arrive at Dropbox, however an error is still present.

    I do not have any errors backing up to the server when I run a non-Dropbox backup.

    Any help/a solution would be greatly appreciated. The backup file size was around 125mb. Here's the log:

    As you can see it appears to be a memory issue, however I can tell you it would definitely not require more than 256mb of memory just to transfer a file to Dropbox...

    About 5 minutes later I then get an email error once the file has arrived within Dropbox.

    Any ideas?

    Okay, I just tried it again and this time selected Tar Gzip instead of just ZIP and did not get the error.
