I am having a php file which parses the meta tags out of the html report files and display them in a table. Until now it has wroked fine on PHP 5.2.4.4, now after installing the version 5.3.5, the page doesn't load and give an error:

"PHP Fatal error:  Out of memory (allocated xxxxxx) (tried to allocate xxxxxx
01 bytes) in File on line xx.". I start increasing the memory allocation in php.ini almost upto 1000MB, but still the same error.

If i downgrade to PHP 5.2.4.4, its working again. What could the problem be?

For some reason, the Test Script given here, gives the same error message on version PHP 5.3.5, 5.2.4.4, 4.

I can confirm the issue affects PHP 5.3.3 on Windows 2008 and 5.3.5 on Windows 7.

I have tested on Ubuntu with 5.3.2 and 5.3.5 and the bug is not present and the script works.

Still an issue on PHP 5.3.10 tested on Windows 2008 and Windows 7 using FCGI and mod_php on both platforms.

This is caused by heap size limitation of Windows. A process can use
heap up to nealy 1500MB on recent versions of Windows.

Because of fragmentation, actual limit is less than 1500MB.
For example, I added some debugging code to PHP (see
https://gist.github.com/4011991 ) and ran following sample
script.

----

<?php
ini_set('memory_limit', '3072M');
define('MB', 1024 * 1024);
$str = str_repeat('a', 400 * MB);
$str = '' . $str;
$str .= $str;

Dispite the heap has nearly 1100MB free space in total, there is no
contiguous 800MB space. Then HeapRealloc() fails and returns NULL.
