 +**WARNING:​** Always make a backup of php.ini before making changes to it.
 +If you are doing this as root, you do not need to use '​sudo'​ at the beginning of the commands.
 +  - Open your php.ini file. (Most often it is in the /etc/ directory)
 +      <​file>​sudo nano /​etc/​php.ini</​file>​
 +  - Locate the following setting:
 +      <​file>​memory_limit ''​ 8M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)</​file>​
 +  - Replace the '​8M'​ with the desired setting, ie Cacti recommends 512M or better.
 +  - Press '​Ctrl+O'​ and then '​Enter'​.
 +  - Press '​Ctrl+X'​ to exit.
