[resolved] Need help: after upgrade to 2.0, I can't access dashboard (5 posts)

    Hello, I'm testing my WP 2.0 upgrade from 1.5.2 (I guess).
    I followed the steps - backup, deactivate plugins, delete, copy, upgrade.php.
    The "upgrade.php" was done with "actually nothing to do - have fun (step 1)" - is this correct? ( I was expecting some kind of DB operation. )
    Anyway, after upgarde, I can't access to my Dashboard from the 'admin page'. When I click on the "Dashboard" button, I get a blank page and my web server generates the following error log :
    "Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes)"

    Here's the URL.
    and you can see the detail's of the system at this page.

    For the first part of your question, yes, something was done and your DB was upgraded. Don't worry about that :) Although I'm not sure about the second...

    You've hit the php script memory limit. See:

    So maybe try adding this to htaccess
    php_value memory_limit "16M"

    or contacting host to increase memory in php.ini.

    This may be caused by a large post.

    Thanks David. Meanwhile, I tested fresh installation using different DB name and got the same result. Now I suspect that it's not a upgrade problem. A s/w version incompatibility (Apache, PHP4), maybe ?
    What's worse, it turned out that I backed up only part of the WP DB tables and I guess there's no downgrading back to 1.5.2 option :-(
    ( I can still post & read. I may have to upload files manually, but I can do that - while waiting for v2.0.1. ) By the way, can anyone show me how to get file/line info. on PHP4 error log?

    Thanks, Michael, it works! I changed the system's default value to 16M. It's strange though - the log line says I tried to allocate "0" bytes! Maybe the link you gave me will tell me what's been going on, but I can't access the page for some reason. Anyway, thanks again :)
