At first: thanks for this great component. It is exactly what I was looking for and makes things really easy !

Unfortunately the restore-process when starting to clone the database fails with this error message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 54844064 bytes) in /homepages/XXX/htdocs/XCloner.php on line 1799

Strange thing is the shown path since the "XCloner.php" is stored in /homepages/XXX/htdocs/backup/XCloner.php  to prevent errors during installation because off the XCloner.php being in the same directory.


Any idea  what causes this error ?


Best regards,

Hi there! Have you tried checking the "incremental sql import" option from the XCloner.php restore screen? That usually helps preventing memory issues.


If it still fails, i would advise increasing your site php.ini memory_limit to a larger value like 128M


Hope it helps! Ovidiu
