I am trying to add HWIOAuthBundle to my project by running the below command.

composer require hwi/oauth-bundle php-http/guzzle6-adapter php-http/httplug-bundle

HWIOAuthBundle github: https://github.com/hwi/HWIOAuthBundle

When I try to run composer require I am getting the out of memory error.

I tried setting the memory_limit to 2G in my php.ini file but did not work. I found my php.ini by running php -i | grep php.ini

To get the current memory_limit value, run:

php -r "echo ini_get('memory_limit').PHP_EOL;"

Try increasing the limit in your php.ini file (ex. /etc/php5/cli/php.ini for Debian-like systems):

; Use -1 for unlimited or define an explicit value like 2G
memory_limit = -1

Or, you can increase the limit with a command-line argument:

php -d memory_limit=-1 composer.phar require hwi/oauth-bundle php-http/guzzle6-adapter php-http/httplug-bundle

To get loaded php.ini files location try:

php --ini

Another quick solution:

php composer.phar COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT=-1 require hwi/oauth-bundle php-http/guzzle6-adapter php-http/httplug-bundle

In my case I was trying to require this package, and I was getting the PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of.

I found it easy to run like this and you don't have to update the PHP INI file.

example: COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT=-1 composer require huddledigital/zendesk-laravel

Hope this help someone.
