Small fix to correct issue with PHP size, see the link below [ADD by TDB 19th Nov 2016]


Basically I needed to expand the memory size for PHP to 64M I have doubled the original size from 32M to 64M not sure this is the best size but works for me.

db configuration setprop php MemoryLimit 64M
expand-template /etc/php.ini
sv t httpd-e-smith

With out the above fix some things may not work - in my case when I setup EM Client for email, calendars, contacts & tasks.

All worked well except for the calendar items.

All credit to Stefano he gave me the answer (I have just shared here for others)
