I renamed a channel section and Craft (2.6.3012) is trying to resave all the entries therein (about 500 entries, many with up to 10 localized versions). I'm constantly getting this error (in
[26-Mar-2018 15:53:40 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 43 bytes) in C:\server\project_x\craft\app\helpers\ModelHelper.php on line 95
Here's the thing... in
memory_limit setting is set to
512M. Not the
256M one would expect from the error. In Craft's
admin/utils/phpinfo page, it shows that PHP does indeed have a limit of 512Mb, but the process still hits a mysterious memory limit at 256MB.
I'm running locally on XAMPP, PHP 5.6.24 (switching to PHP 7 prevents me from being able to login for some reason), and this is just part of setting up a site, so I don't care about performance or advisable settings with this issue.
What am I missing?
