With Magento 2, there are certain requirements to run the system. Despite configuring over 768 MB of memory, Magento can still complain.

Your current PHP memory limit is 128M. 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.

For additional assistance, see PHP settings check help .


Create in /home/username/public_html the file .user.ini and enter the following:

memory_limit = 756M

Run the following commands to update Magento with the correct memory usage:

php  -c /home/username/public_html/.user.ini bin/magento cache:flush
php  -c /home/username/public_html/.user.ini bin/magento cron:run
php  -c /home/username/public_html/.user.ini bin/magento setup:cron:run

Tip: Include -c /home/username/public_html/.user.ini with the cron jobs.
