Allowed Memory Size Exhausted Error in Laravel Application


I keep getting an error in our Laravel application that says “Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 20480 bytes)”. I’ve increased the PHP memory limit to 2GB but I still keep getting this error. Our databases are a little more than 1GB in size, so I’m not sure if that could be the issue?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @d8ce18629910-41ba-a430-d7058a,

Are you sure the memory limit you’ve increased is taking place? To make sure you’ll need to check it. The check if that’s true, create a file called info.php in your laravel’s root directory. Inside this file you can type in:



Once you’ve saved the file you’ll need to open it in your browser - In there search for memory size and see if the updated value has taken place.
