    I'm having issues with executing a Shell script via PHP on the server. What it executes is a shell script that runs a java program. The program runs just fine under the user account that PHPsuExec is trying to execute this on .


    relevant details are :

    System has 22GB of ram
    12GB is free in caches.
    15GB is free.

    LSWS : 4.2.2
    PHP : 5.3.x
    PHP Memory Limit : 999M

    Application Memory Limit in the lsphp external app : 900mb in soft limit / 2200mb in hard limit

    I am really not understanding why the shell script is unable to execute and giving errors about not having enough ram.

    I think you just keep increasing the limit. PHP itself uses memory as well, may not have enough memory left.
    you can also change memory limit with

    ulimit -v ....

    from shell, then try your PHP script.
