Magento: PHP Fatal error – Allowed memory size exhausted when bin/magento module:status

This was strange one. When calling simple magento command with PHP CLI I was getting error that allowed memory size was exhausted.

[root@machine ~]# php bin/magento module:status
[root@machine ~]# PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 2097152 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32768 bytes) in /path/to/wwww/ on line 951

I checked php.ini and it was set like this:

memory_limit = 2048M

I checked if there are different values for CLI version. It were the same.

Solution was simple. Change your php.ini value for memory_limit and define it in gigabytes instead in megabytes.

memory_limit = 2G

I restarted Apache and it started to work.
