Memory Exhausted? (4 posts)

    I'm trying to upgrade a site that uses WP to show projects by various designers. When I try to run the upgrade script I get this error:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 16384 bytes) in [path]/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 149
    The server says it's doing just fine, processor and memory wise.
    Anyone have a clue?

    That number happens to be 1024 x 1024 x 8. or 8Meg. Sounds like a PHP configuration issue of some sort that limits the per-script memory maximum.
    On the other hand, I can't imagine what part of the upgrade script is causing that much of a memory hit. Unless you have some particularly large data objects in your posts/db that are being migrated.

    I'll try that tomorrow. I really should have thought of that as I do know that the users table is way too big (we have more than 10k individual users who are allowed to post).

    Actually I have decided not to upgrade this site. The database size problem is trivially fixable, but now that the ability to upload images has been completely excised from post.php my users are telling me that Mingus is less, if not completely unusable for them.
    Perhaps Pictoralis will be the way to go if that gets upgraded to work with Mingus.
