I was in some ubuntu server configs, and found that my memory on the server (online resources say default is usually 128Mb correct?)
and I found this listed
memory_limit = -1
Why? What does a value of -1 do? Php of 5.6
From the official documantation here:
This sets the maximum amount of memory in bytes that a script is allowed to allocate. This helps prevent poorly written scripts for eating up all available memory on a server. Note that to have no memory limit, set this directive to -1.
Don't do that. Obviously php has a memory leak somewhere and you are telling the server to just use all the memory that it wants. The problem has not been fixed at all. If you monitor your server, you will see that it is now probably using up most of the RAM and even swapping to disk.
