Issue: Error running composer install

$ composer install/ $ composer update
$ PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'ErrorException' with message 'proc_open(): 
fork failed - Cannot allocate memory' in phar:///usr/local/bin/composer/vendor/symfony/console/Symfony/Component/Console/Application.php:990

Solution

$ nano /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini

...

php_admin_value[memory_limit] = 128M # change this accordingly; I did 256M
$ service php5-fpm reload
$ composer update
# You may add here your
# server {

# statements for each of your virtual hosts to this file

# You should look at the following URL's in order to grasp a solid understanding
# of Nginx configuration files in order to fully unleash the power of Nginx.

# http://wiki.nginx.org/QuickStart
# http://wiki.nginx.org/Configuration
#
# Generally, you will want to move this file somewhere, and start with a clean
# file but keep this around for reference. Or just disable in sites-enabled.
