View Full Version : File size limit exceeded (core dumped)

16th April 2008, 05:01 PM
I have a Fedora 6 server running in a data center. Up until today everything ran fine, but now, when I try to run my php script at command line I get the following:
File size limit exceeded (core dumped)

this is very annoying as I need my scripts to run. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I run the script via: php myscript.php

Please help.

Reduce the file size.

yes, this might work if the file size was large, but the filesize is only 10kb big. I get the same error even with a file containing
echo "Test";
so it's surely not the file size.

Does your script use a temp file? If so, it might be looping and the temp file's getting too big.

no. The script runs solely within itself and the uses the includes for housing commonly used functions. All logging is done via a mysql backend. As mentioned before though the error occurs even when I do a simple php file like:

echo "Test";

when it gives this error it then creates a file in the directory called core.#### where #### is a number.

I have a stupid question - do you have enough free space on the partition you are using for the new file?
Try df command for example to check it.

yes, but I figured out the problem and fixed it. there was an error_log in the directory that was large. So after modifying that it seems to work...thanks all for your help.
