We have two websites sharing same catalog but different prices. Total catalog size is 10K. Site1 displays products/categories fine. However same category on site2 shows "white Screen of Death". After inspecting server log we get following error
PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 130968 bytes)
Php memory limit is set to 512. We also changed to 1024MB but no joy
Surprisingly, when we move catalog folder out of Media, category loads fine with place holder image
If image size is the issue, then I am struggling to understand Why same products/images work fine on site1.
Magento re-size and cache images so using one large size image should not effect.
Both Sites use same template/catalog/product/list.phtml
Please share your experience or dont shy to give advice.
