RM 1.1 Resource Memory Hog - Multiple Tabs...?


Well-known member
Hello, I've added 6 extra tabs to each of the resource manager items, when editing a resource, I sometimes get a 500 Inrernal Server Error, here are the following logs.

[Wed Oct 16 08:37:24 2013] [error] [client ********] (12)Cannot allocate memory: couldn't create child process: /opt/suphp/sbin/suphp for /home/********/public_html/community/index.php, referer: http://xboxgamer.org/community/games/grand-theft-auto-v.636/field?field=cheats

The memory limit was set at 128M but has now been increased to 512M - Is this an issue with the RM or with my current host? I've not had any problems before amending additional tabs,

As a suggestion: When editing a resource, you should choose which "tab" you want to edit, and not just open all tabs at once on the same page.

That generally looks like a host problem -- one of those is just viewing a tab, not editing it.

If it can't create the necessary process, it generally means that XenForo's code wasn't even being hit. For example, your server/VPS may simply be running out of memory: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=925866 However, it may be indicative of other processes causing issues on the server. You may want to look at how much memory is being used.
