On a VPS with 2 GB ram only, I can install D8.4.0 with Composer
but I cannot install a module !
php -d memory_limit=-1 ../composer.phar require drupal/pathauto -vvv

– Installing drupal/token (1.0.0):
Failed: [ErrorException] 0: proc_open(): fork failed – Cannot allocate memory
Installation failed, reverting ./composer.json to its original content.
The following exception is caused by a lack of memory or swap, or not having swap configured

proc_open(): fork failed – Cannot allocate memory
On this VPS, I don’t have root access (OVH Cloud Web beta, managed by OVH), so I cannot create a swap file.
As it’s a beta test, I cannot simply pay more to have a bigger “Cloud Web” with 4 or 8 GB memory…
What is the minimum memory for Composer with D8.4.0 ?
It’s incredible that the site is UP , so enough memory for Drupal itself …
but NOT enough memory to install a MODULE !
No way to reduce the RAM usage of Composer ?
Have a nice WE. Didier
