How can I allow for the selection of 1536M, and 2048M for extramemorylimit via the menu?
the Extra PHP memory limit can not be set higher than 1024M.
I tried editing the php.ini file's memory_limit to 1536M doesn't allow the selection of higher values in the menu for extramemorylimit. This also raises it for ALL php not just the backup and restore scripts etc.
I don't want to insert an ini_set("memory_limit","2048M"); into grade/import/csv/index.php if I can help it.
A hack to /moodle/admin/settings/server.php
line 177 begins // performance settingpage
options in the pick list are hard coded beginning
One could add lines in the array.
'1536M' => '1536M',
'2048M' => '2048M'
make sure the line above the entry for 1536M ends with a ','
Values added will show in the pick list. Probably don't have to warn about hacks and updates, but just did. ;)
Another way ... add a line to config.php file:
$CFG->extramemorylimit = 'YOURVALUEM';
And for future reference, just about anything in mdl_conf table could be added to config.php. Might be better than the hack - easy to change.
