Allowed memory size exhausted

Problem on uploading my CharacterProfiler.lua

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1020596 bytes) in /roster/lib/commonfunctions.lib.php on line 150

My CharacterProfiler.lua had about 1Megabyte, when i upload it, i became the error Message. I deleted it and Scan all Cahracters new then i had about 700kb upload it again and the same error appears.

Any Idea to fix it.

Sorry for Bad English :blackeye:

I have had this problem. I suggest doing a /cp purge all and then go through about half of your characters, upload them and then do it again with the other half. You should only have to upload the ones that you have played lately, so once you have them all up, at the start of a session with the game do a purge and then upload at the end.

Just a suggestion: An allowed memory size of 8388608 is very low. you will get problems not only on cp uploads.

think about another webhoster

Well, enter WoW, hit enter and type /cp purge all - because that's where it happens :wink:
/cp means your talking to the addon that uses that command, in this case, the addon CharacterProfiler !

Just type /cp to know all its commands and how to use them.

And this goes for all adddons !

When the file comes in on the Roster, it will have the same size as your original file on your disk. A mere 1Mbytes.

But before it's thrown away, it will be converted into PHP multi dimensional array - and the size of it will be 3 a 4 times bigger.
So, when are your uploading, for a moment given, a 1 Mbytes characterprofiles.lua will need some 3 a 4 Mbytes in server memory.
And for that situation, there is no work arround possible right now.

If this really starts to be a problem, then the characterprofiles.lua should be split in individual PHP arrays like Realm->Guild->Chars files and cached on disk.
Handling afterwards can be done easily - reading only the files that are having a valid "Realm->Guild" match.

It seems to me that many webhosts are using a ZX81 (remember this one ?) for their web servers... :wink:

Nah, 8mb max used to be the default up to 4.3.x/5.0.x or so. Only the most recent default to 128 MB, but hosters usually tune those back to 8mb per run as well.

If you are using Roster2 the problem is not really the size of the cp. it is the amount of sql debug infos that is create due to the size of the cp. So switching to compressed .gz will not help.

As i said. 8M is very low. I had problems with 32M. Think about another Webhoster

I agree, and this is what you 'have' at your disposal.
(Althought 128 Mb seems a more a dedicated xx $ solution/month to me)

needs to be added to his:

and the current (roster) working-set, like the local variables/array/strings and page code.

Needles to say that may of use share the roster with a Guild CMS (mine is small : 280 membres - 16 000 posts & articles), UniAdmin, with it's small l footprint...

Anyway, solutions are possible on the soft side - but why losing time on this ? .... Compare web hosters always before accepting their servcies and puttings soft on it.
They are like PC's : we don't play WoW on a 8086 neither....

you can use dedicated servers :p

Also, you can see at www.ovh.com for hosting.

I have a server like that at :wink: www.ovh.fr - but, instead of burning 300 $ a year (and that's a 'starting price') I tend to spend money differently.

With all respect, we're talking 'Guild stuff' hosting here :wink

I prefer using money for the software I put on it…..
