Hello,

as said in title, I can't create backups after update to 2.1.0.b1. It says PHP memory_limit too low even though mine is set to 128. One version earlier was working fine.

Regards

You have a line in your wp-config.php file like this:
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '134217728' );

Change it to read
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

and now everything will work just fine.

That's due to a bug in beta 1. It cannot parse memory limits given in absolute byte values, i.e. 134217728, but it can parse memory limits given in human readable number-followed-by-UOM format such as 128M or 131072K. This will be fixed in the next testing version.

Hi, I already had it like this

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');

I changed it to what you suggested but I still get error.

Cheers.

To the best of my knowledge that's the only user-defined constant which affects the memory limit. Can you please try the latest developer's release?
