Cannot load modules from Wampmanager?

I have WAMP 3 running on 3 different machines, and I cannot get a single one of them to modify the httpd.conf. If I exit WAMP, modify httpd.conf manually, and then restart WAMP - the modules list hasn't changed one iota, and it doesn't revert my httpd.conf file to it's previous state, so where the hell is loading the modules from?

I'll keep that in mind, but with 3 different configurations having the exact same issue, I was thinking (and rightfully so) that a simple explanation wasn't expecting too much, especially as searching the forum for Modules, wampmanager.ini (once I narrowed down the issue), etc. yields little to no results.

The issue (on all 3 systems - which makes me think this is a common issue) was that refresh.php was using more memory than I had allocated in php.ini, which caused the function to exit without updating the .ini file, which is why I kept seeing the same settings, wrong version # (after the latest update), etc.

Increasing the "memory_limit" setting to 512M worked on 2 of the systems. The other one was a little more stubborn and I had to add:

ini_set('memory_limit', '-1');

to the refresh.php file, then run "Refresh" from Wampmanager. (and then commented it out, of course). Once it got the wampmanager.ini file back in sync, it now updates like it should.

A good rule of thumb when experiencing wampmanager issues is to ignore what it says and review the WAMP homepage/phpinfo() etc. Next time I'll know!

Hi,


> refresh.php was using more memory than I had allocated in php.ini

May we know how much memory you had allocated in `php.ini` to cause this error to happen please.

I do believe the default setting was/is 128M. and I must've been close to the threshold, as every now and then it would work, which made it all the more confusing!

Ha,

I know what the default is, I was wondering if you had reduced it for some reason smiling smiley
