Try increasing the amount of memory needed by PHP in the php.ini file...

This is normally set to 18M for most setups.

i have a web package by the webhoster strato (germany) and no access to this file.

Arh.... I don't know then... Sorry.

You could ask Strato, whether a) you can override via .htaccess or whether they can do this for your virtual account.

See here:

Hope there is a solution for you. This large amount of memory is only needed a few times I think as certain cache files are generated.

I also get this message, why should i increase the memory size when every other portal/cms works fine!

This appears to be either a programming error or bad design!! which is it?

Try this one:

Maybe it'll help.

There's one very poor workaround to this problem, if you can't access php.ini, but simply want to get a look at how your ezPublish site looks. Keep refreshing the page a few times (you have to do it less as you move through the site, as it seems the classes are loaded) and eventually each page will load. This certainly isn't a permanent solution though!

It would be great if the developers could address this issue. I imagine a lot of people with web hosting would have this problem, and many hosting providers are unlikely to agree to the change in PHP memory.
