DOAJ Export Plugin, Fatal error: Out of memory

Postby zhaoqingdao » Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:16 am

Dear Sir,
Since our OJS system has installed the updates to version on August 9, 2013, there has been a problem that is hard to handle with. The problem is when exporting data by DOAJ Export Plugin, we have to export the collected data of the entire journal from its very first article of the first issue to the last article of the latest issue. This differs with the previous method, when we could export the data of certain issues one by one, i.e. the Volume 1 Issue 1 and Volume 1 Issue 2 are exported as separate XML documents, whereas the present situation is one entire journal would be one XML file.
Besides, we have always been warned of the below.
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 138674176) (tried to allocate 24 bytes) in /home/domainname/public_html/lib/pkp/classes/db/ on line 318

We are now wring to inquire how to solve the problem.

Hi zhaoqingdao,

Try applying the patch described at to decrease the memory requirements.
