How to increase memory limit for PHP over 2GB?

I have an problem increasing memory limit for PHP as Apache module.

If I put following directive in Apache configuration, that work OK:

php_value memory_limit 1.99G

But over 2GB do not work, it's restore this value back to 128MB.

What is the problem here? I need more memory for some PDF related tasks.

Server is Debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP, PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze13 with 12GB physical RAM.


Have you tried using the value in MB ?

php_value memory_limit 2048M

Also try editing this value in php.ini not Apache.
