When trying to update Combstrap, you may get an exhausted memory error.

This article shows you how to avoid this error.


The error

When you try to update Combostrap, you may get this error:

Fatal Exception Exhausted Memory

dokuwiki\Exception\FatalException: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 20480 bytes)
An unforeseen error has occured. This is most likely a bug somewhere. It might be a problem in the combo plugin.

More info has been written to the DokuWiki error log.

How to resolve this error?

To resolve this error, you need to update the Combo plugin manually via the manual install tab.

This step is explained in the update documentation.

Why do we get this error?

The update script of DokuWiki scan the directories and update file by file. You even need to list the unused/deleted file otherwise they are not deleted.

This scan runs out of memory because ComboStrap has a lot of code.
