Hello MartinNL, and thanks for your question.

I have gone ahead and increased your php.ini setting for memory_limit to 512MB from the 32MB it had been set to, and it looks like the errors have stopped.

I also made your php.ini file recursive so if you need to modify any further PHP settings, you should simply be able to edit the php.ini file in your /public_html directory.

Please let us know if you needed anything else at all.
