Using all PHP memory (3 posts)

    This is a really great plugin and I like using it. I'm trying to add a lot of categories, 1 for each city in the world with a population of over 15,000...That's around 23,000 cities and therefore categories.

    Unfortunately, I cannot add more than 25 at a time because it runs out of memory. The error I get is this:

    "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3753263 bytes) in /homepages/6/d292166717/htdocs/travelblog/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 885"

    Is there anything that can be done about this?

    I'd like to rate the plugin highly, but at hte moment I can't because it just doesn't work for me.

    Got the same problem on an import of 6000+ Google product categories.

    # First attempt result: PHP Warning: Unknown: Input variables exceeded 1000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini.
    # Set these values in php.ini

    max_input_vars = 10000
    suhosin.post.max_vars = 10000
    suhosin.request.max_vars = 10000

    # Next attempt, PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted
    # Increased memory_limit in php.ini

    memory_limit = -1

    Still all failed !

    Any ideas here ?

    We have spent the last 3 hours trying to get this wonderful plugin to import the Google products taxonomy as Product Categories.

    We could sure use your input. Please have a look at the ongoing post on WPMUdev.org: http://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/category-list-importing-ebay-or-other

    Your thoughts would be of great value to that group and this one ;-)


    P.S. Be happy to chip in 50 bucks to your paypal if you can get us past this.
