I'm using EE 2.5.5 and noticed recently that the php info tool is showing this error when accessed:

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 10485760) (tried to allocate 131121 bytes) in /home/curvedes/public_html/mercytouch2/system/expressionengine/controllers/cp/tools_utilities.php on line 2096

Any suggestions on how this should be fixed would be appreciated.

Sounds like you need to increase your PHP memory limit in your php.ini file.

Your server administrator can configure this for you if you have no access to your PHP configuration. If you run a local environment using Mamp or Wamp, you can edit the php.ini and find where it says memory_limit = 32M (integer may vary so search for memory_limit)

Increase to a higher number like 128M and save the file. Restart the server.
