Since the update to Piwik 2.x I have problems with the “memory exhausting”.
First it was possible to login, but there was no css-style on the page. So it was very hard to view the statistics.
With a little searching, I found out that the php page loading the stylesheet was giving an error at loading: “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of xxxxx bytes exhausted (tried to allocate xx bytes)” (I don’t remember the exact numbers anymore).
To change this into separate files, you have to change the config.ini.php file and put the following tekst in it:
disable_merged_assets = 1
I did this, cleared my browser cache and restarted the browser. But unfortunately it dit not help. The results stayed the same as before.
At this moment I cannot find this solution anymore (removed??).
Since than things had gone worse. Now I want to visit only the statistics page, but I cannot even log in.
The page shows only an error when accessing it:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 80 bytes) in /xxx/xxx/public_html/statistieken/vendor/leafo/lessphp/lessc.inc.php on line 1711
Increasing memory for php as suggested in Piwik reports this error and fails: “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of X bytes exhausted (tried to allocate X bytes)”. What should I do? - Analytics Platform - Matomo and other threads is not an option, because it is an hosting server and I’m not able to change the php.ini.
I have searched the issue tracker, but did not find a recent added bug on this.
And as mentioned before: it has started with the installation of Piwik version 2. So I don’t think that increasing the memory is the solution, but there is something within the Piwik code that uses too much memory or has a memory leak.
I hope there will be a solution to get Piwik working (going back to Piwik 1.x ?). Otherwise I have to search again for an statisics/analytics solution (Google analytics?).
