Description Bertrand GRONDIN 2008-07-28 08:49:16 UTC
It's impossible to access to this page, an error server access is displayed.

PHP fatal error in /usr/local/apache/common-local/php-1.5/includes/parser/Parser.php line 4263:
Allowed memory size of 83886080 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 65536 bytes)
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-11 08:55:22 UTC
The page is simply too large to fit into the maximum amount of memory that is allowed. It contains 4428 transclusions of {{Article simple}}. I would reduce that and split the page up somehow. It can still be edited:

Suggesting to close this issue as "WONTFIX".
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-08-11 20:44:46 UTC
We should handle such conditions gracefully -- total script failure due to exhaustion of resource limits may seem merely annoying for an individual page view, but could completely break batch operations.

I had a similar issue when importing the 'Barack Obama' article and all its dependencies from enwiki to a fresh wiki.  The Special:Import shows a blank page :)

I am wondering if we could use PHP register_shutdown_function() to try to finish up the rendering. Probably unlikely since we are out of memory :(
