Bug Memory error

Not open for further replies.
We upgraded to VB 4.2.5, Mysql 5.6 and PHP7 and now the daily cron job is hitting a memory error every day.

We have memory size set to 512mb, which is large, so I'm not sure how it's hitting this limit. Any ideas how to fix it without just increasing the memory limit?

PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1580989120 bytes) in /home/domain/public_html/includes/class_core.php on line 1386

This is not a bug, this simply means you have a lot of members on your site. By design, the daily user cron will process every member on your site and look for valid events.

You can turn this off by turning off the "Mass Apply Daily Actions" setting on the vBCredits Configuration page.
This error didn't happen before the upgrades.

It would be a big coincidence if we were just under the limit, then the same day we updated it went over the memory limit.

"Enable this to process all users' birthday, paycheck, and activity actions every midnight. "

What is paycheck?

We currently use only a few actions. Would disabling "Mass Apply Daily Actions" have any affect on those?

No, disabling the daily actions will not impact any of those 4 actions.

Paycheck is the ability to give certain usergroups credits automatically at set intervals.
