Ran into an interesting thing I hadn’t seen about php before.
Client wanted to install the pecl module for Mongo DB. Should have been a pretty straight forward process:
pecl install mongo
Nope! It immediately returned the error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 23040 bytes)
Strange, given that the php memory_limit value was considerably higher than that.
As it turns out, pecl doesn’t use the default php.ini file. Who knew? Thanks to another blogger, I was able to quickly resolve the problem by running:
peardev install pecl/mongo
Figured I’d help up the google hits on this one for the next person.
