This works fine on localhost but crashes on remote Server. I can return one category, but it will crash when I try to display multiple categories. I also tried to save the categories in a variable and return the variable, which again worked on localhost but not on remote Server.

    'elementType' => ElementType::Entry,
    // 'cache' => true,
    'elementsPerPage' => 999,

    'criteria' => ['section' => 'program','type' =>'Event'],
    'transformer' => function(EntryModel $entry) {
            'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' => '*'
        $parent = $entry->getParent();

        return [
            'title' => $entry->title,
            'url' => $entry->url,
            'id' => $entry->id,
            'description' => (string) $entry->description,
            'level' => $entry->level,

  • What's the 500 ISE error message? If it's Craft generated, it'll be in craft/storage/runtime/logs. If it's web server generated, it'll be in your web server's error logs.

  • Thanks for the tip @BradBell: I found this error message in the Craft logs: PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 65552 bytes) Nov 22 '17 at 17:08

You may want to try further limiting what you're returning from the API call.

The server may just have a low PHP memory size limit set. There are many answers to fix the PHP memory size bytes exhaustion error. Here's a few:

That is a PHP ini setting. If you don't have access to the php.ini file, you have to call ini_set() somewhere in your source code.

This statement sets no memory limit, although I do not recommend using this: ini_set('memory_limit','-1');

Try the lowest amount that you can afford before deploying application, as this can cause server issues if too much memory is allocated to by a bad PHP script.

  • Thanks a lot @Angelo! Increasing the memory limit to 256M solved the problem. Nov 23 '17 at 10:43
