I was installing xdebug a few days back to one of the production servers when I encountered this beautiful error message:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 143 bytes) in /usr/share/pear/PEAR/PackageFile/v2/Validator.php on line 1608 Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 64 bytes)
So my instinct tells me to look inside the php.ini file and find for this line:
memory_limit = 12M
The server’s php.ini file is already set to 256M so I should go look for something else. Luckily, I found this tip from www.agileapproach.com.
Open the file /usr/share/pear/pearcmd.php and add this right after the
< ?php line:
That should fix the “Fatal error: Allowed memory size” error. I can now resume installing xdebug without any errors.
The reason why editing the php.ini will not fix the issue is because PECL/PEAR does not use the PHP settings, so the PEAR settings needs to be adjusted.
Hope this helps.
