Export/import of database via phpMyAdmin fails with Internal Server Error:

Error in Processing Request
Error code: 500
Error text: Internal Server Error

Other memory consuming actions can also lead to such error.

The following error can be found on phpMyAdmin server:

[Wed Feb 12 21:01:12 2014] [error] [client] PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 25165824 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 12287528 bytes) in /usr/local/pem/sysvhosts/phpMyAdmin/libraries/zip.lib.php on line 114, referer:


PHP memory limit is low on the side of phpMyAdmin server.

# grep memory_limit /usr/libexec/php4-cgi/etc/php.ini
memory_limit = 24M


Increase PHP memory_limit on the server where phpMyAdmin is hosted.
