Support » Fixing WordPress » Maximum function nesting level of ‘100’ reached

  • Hi,

    I’ve just installed WordPress locally on Ubuntu with apache2, php5 and some php extensions. I’ve done this before and never had a problem (on an older pc though). Now however I get funny error messages here and there. I already had to raise the memory limit to 32MB and also, for instance when saving a post I get a message saying:

    Fatal error: Maximum function nesting level of ‘100’ reached, aborting! in /var/www/wp/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 429

    I saved the call stack as HTML so you can view it. Also, here’s the output of phpinfo().

    Does anybody have a clue what can be causing these issues? I have all plugins turned off. I hope someone can help me out.

  • Here’s some additional information:

    My install was 2.6.2 so I figured I’d try updating to 2.6.3. I also uninstalled the xdebug extension that I was running. This didn’t fix it, it just changes the output. This made saving a page trigger a Fatal error:

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/wp/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 274



    A quick search on Google for the error message “Maximum function nesting level of ‘100’ reached” shows that the error can occur on multiple (php?) platforms.

    So I would be inclined to think that it might be a Apache, Ubuntu, database or programming language problem instead of (just) a WordPress problem. Just in case, did you check Apache, PHP, MySql, or Ubuntu docs/ forums?
