I'm running a php script whit cronjob on a server every 10 minutes, and
the script is suposed to run maximum 5 minutes, and I get this error
message from my provider :

Time: Mon Mar 17 17:20:17 2008
Account: accountname
Resource: Virtual Memory Size
Exceeded: 185 > 100 (MB)
Executable: /usr/local/bin/php
Command Line: /usr/local/bin/php -q
PID: 23067
Killed: No

this script maximum memory usage is 4.5 MB, tested whit :
The script is running 5 minutes i set it whit : set_time_limit(300); and
ini_set('max_execution_time', 300); because in the past i got letters
white execution time exceed.

I'm using curl in the script to get another page content.
