Hi,
I have a PHP script that allows the upload and conversion of photos to jpeg and works fine on one server but not on another.

I have VPS hosting and wanted to know if there is a setting I can change via cPanel/WHM


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3168 bytes) in /home/mywebsite/public_html/admin/add_upd_item.php on line 111

$tempFile = $_FILES['image1']['tmp_name'];      
line 111---> $image = imagecreatefromjpeg($tempFile);

Thanks

Andrew

I had the same problem. There is a memory limit that you exceed. Only upload smaller images or get more memory resources allocated to your account.

PHP imagecreatefromjpeg fails due to memory limit.

You could just add into that upload page as the first line
ini_set('memory_limit', '64M');

Or increase as necessary
