New install, not upgrade. Everything good in 'Storage Locations'. Only other plugin on site is Askimet.
Install seemed fine but I am getting this when I try to go to Forum Page
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 9642445 bytes) in /../wp-content/plugins/simple-press/sp-startup/sp-load-debug.php on line 192
Is it really needing that much memory or could it be something else?
It's getting 256MB. I deleted the complete install and will grab the latest from SVN tomorrow and see what happens. Will let you know.
Sadly the important bit of information was probably buried in your php error log. This looks to me like it was caused by an endless loop - an error causing an error when trying to report it going around and around until memory gets exhausted.
We have slowly been tracking these down and eliminating them and it is partly because we have some of our own debug code still in place (this is Alpha after all).
if it happens again and the problem has not already been resolved - can you check your php error log?
