Allowed memory size of … bytes exhausted

ExpressionEngine returns the following error: “Allowed memory size of … bytes exhausted.”

Troubleshooting memory issues

This error indicates that a PHP process on the server ran out of memory. The amount of available memory for PHP will vary from server to server. ExpressionEngine 2.0 requires a minimum of 32MB memory allocated to PHP.

The solution to this error is to increase the memory limit. This would have to be done by the server administrator or host.
