Magento 2 at Hostgator!!!!

Magento 2 at Hostgator!!!!

I found it exceptionally frustrating that the installer passed all of the the necessary tests to install at HostGator and then wouldn't allow for module additions or upgrades because the PHP memory limit could not be adjusted above 256M.


Has anyone else has such trouble with HostGator?  How did you defeat it?


Recommend another host?


For the record even the tech at HostGator gave up when he kept lifting the memory through every php.ini and .htaccess file we could find and nothing worked.


Thanks for your input,

The thing is that it needs more memory to upgrade or install the schema of extensions. Try to set memory_limit to 1024M. But anyway, I would recommend Nexcess instead of Hostgator.

Re: Magento 2 at Hostgator!!!!

A quick solution for memory limit in Magento 2 command is directly adding memory limit inside command:

php -d memory_limit=-1 bin/magento setup:upgrade
php -dmemory_limit=-1 bin/magento setup:di:compile
