When visiting the patterns tab of pathauto, patterns don't show and a memory error is triggered.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 536870912 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 137255413 bytes)

My php memory limit is set to 512MB (which should be more than enough). I have read to turn off Entity Tokens module. I did that and It fixed the issue.

There is something wrong here. I can't use Rules module now because of this issue with pathauto and Entity Tokens...

What is the consensus on this issue. I have seen it over and over again under Issues.

The same issue, 512M is required as minimum, even the whole site never required so much.

same for me, but I can't disable Entity tokens module for testing

PHP memory limit 1024M
Drupal 7.19
Pathauto 7.x-1.2
Entity tokens 7.x-1.0-rc3

I tried to reproduce the issue with :
Drupal 7.21
Token 7.x-1.5
Entity tokens 7.x-1.0
Pathauto 7.x-1.2

And only 192Mb in PHP configuration.

I'm not able to reproduce it with this configuration.
I advise you to update your modules to latest version.

Same here, but I think the issue is conflit between Token module and Entity tokens (If desable Entity tokens is a "solution"), maybe they can't see the error. Because this things happens when the site has a lot of nodes, content type and fields the more elements of that you more memory it will be need it.

Issue summary: View changes


is there something new about this issue? I am experiencing the same problem - memory exhausted when selecting path auto patterns tab.
Existing patterns are still working but I cannot change them or add new ones. Disabling Entity Tokens is not a solution, as I need the module in other places.

any solution here?

Try this solution. Also make sure to update core and all modules to the latest recommended versions.

I never understood the invention of "Entity" with D7...
