phpmyadmin memory error

Hello, I have a problem on my CentOS 6.5 server related to phpmyadmin.

If I click on Export (not for a particular database, but for all the databases) I get a 500 error, which translated into this error in the Apache log:
PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 256 bytes) in /var/www/html/phpmyadmin/libraries/dbi/DBIMysqli.class.php on line 299 

I have tried increasing memory limit up to 512MB in php.ini, but I keep getting this error after restarting apache.

I have also updated phpmyadmin to the latest version my php version allows, but I still get the error.

There are no errors listed in phpmyadmin home page, the configuration should be ok.

Versions: phpmyadmin, php 5.4.45, mysql 5.5.48

I managed to export the databases from the command line, so that's no problem, but I'd like to get rid of this error.

There is a ton of php scripts running on the server, but the only memory error I get is this one.

Does anyone have any suggestion?
