Upgrade Error

Upgrading to beta2 I get this

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3330 bytes) in /public_html/xen/library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php on line 255

Do I ask my host for more memory for php?

Where'd that happen, while rebuilding? Any idea what it was rebuilding? (The previous page likely would've said.)

If you're running debug mode, disable it.


I recommend to realize that during beta testing the support is 'where possible', and I strongly recommend to take preventive measures to get the best results:

Back up your data.
Upload the .zip as a whole to the server, unpack in a different directory.
Close the board (even though you don't have to) putting it behind .htaccess (so ppl can't load it)
cp -rfv upload/* ../public_html/ (in other words, copy the files, overwriting the existing files)
And run the install/ from the browser.
- Make sure debug mode is disabled.
When successful, check the board, remove .htaccess.
Then archive the backup of beta1 offsite, and delete the temporary and now obsolete beta2/ dir.
