An impossible problem to fix


An impossible problem to fix

Xampp, windows, this is the readiness check when going from 2.1.5 CE to 2.1.6 CE

Your current PHP memory limit is 6G. Magento 2 requires it to be set to 756M or more. As a user with root privileges, edit your php.ini file to increase memory_limit. (The command php --ini tells you where it is located.) After that, restart your web server and try again.

Last time I checked, 6G was a little bit higher than 756M. Such a sloppy error message would be amusing were it not on a business critical system. Suffice to say, we'll stick with 2.1.5 for the moment.


Re: An impossible problem to fix

I fixed this by manually running the cron tasks a few times, i.e.

php ..\..\bin\magento cron:run
php ..\..\update\cron.php
php ..\..\bin\magento setup:cron:run
