On a RunCloud instance, PHP CLI is a separate server setting which is a toggle control to set the version of PHP that applies to using PHP commands on the command line for the whole server. You can set it by selecting the server in the RunCloud panel then Settings > PHP-CLI Version > PHP Version
The default memory for the PHP-CLI version is set at 128MB which in certain PHP commands/scripts will hit the fatal error out of memory usage and won’t complete the script, you can get around this by editing the php.ini file, currently there is no RunCloud panel setting for this so you’ll need to edit the file directly.
In the 2 values for memory, the PHP-CLI uses the master value and the webapp uses the local value:
The location of the php config files are version specific, so for example using PHP 8.1 it would be:
Change the path to the version you want to change. Then edit the
php.ini file inside the directory, search for memory and change the memory_limit from 128MB to 256MB or more if needed.
memory_limit = 256M
Save the file and the memory limit is set.
Set PHP Version and memory limit on webapps
Setting memory limits and PHP versions is different for the web apps on the server than the PHP CLI settings and is web app specific. The PHP version is set under the:
Web Application > Settings > PHP Version
And the memory is set under:
Web Application > Settings > PHP Settings > memory_limit
That’s it, hopefully RunCloud will include the PHP-CLI memory setting via the panel in the future.
