How much memory is needed?

Hi guys, I have just installed a totally fresh new copy of Vanilla on my shared hosting.

The PHP memory limit is 256M.

When browsing to the folder I just get
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 64 bytes) in /home/claycms/public_html/vanilla/library/core/class.dispatcher.php on line 544

Surely it shouldn't need more memory than this? Any ideas?

    My install works fine with only 50MB php limit.

    How odd, any ideas what else may cause this issue?

    OK so it turned out that due to whatever reason, some of the controller files had not uploaded correctly. The dispatcher was in an endless loop trying to dispatch to the dashboard controller file. Redownloaded/uploaded and now working!

    When uploading files, try to use a client with verbose output, so it it borks you are aware.

    one example

    rsync -r -v --exclude=cache* --exclude=config* /path/to/local/forum/*

    same goes with unzipping files.

    grep is your friend.
