I'm sorry if this thread is a duplicate. I'm trying to load a 636KB excel file with 2500 rows and 50 cols. My php mem limit is 256 MB and this file exhausts it. I've tried caching with cache_to_discISAM, cache_to_sqlite etc, still it exhausts memory. I'm soooo desperate to find a solution. Thanks in advance
