I am an engineer working on a server. I am running into a problem with my PHP script where it keeps giving me a "fatal error" about being over my allowed memory.

How do I increase the PHP memory limit on Dreamhost? Which file would I have to edit in order to raise the memory allocated to PHP for a script?

For some retarded reason Dreamhost seem to have renamed the php.ini file to the phprc file, but the process is exactly the same as any other hosting package, just the file name is different.

Open your phprc file and look for these variables memory_limit, post_max_size and upload_max_filesize. These are the values you need to increase.

P.S: Save $50 on Dreamhost hosting here:

Also, if you're running out of memory, note that for shared hosting and VPS setups, MySQL runs on a separate machine/partition from your website's files.

If the issue is that MySQL is consistently running out of RAM/memory, you can move it to a VPS (if you haven't already) and adjust the amount of RAM available to the machine from the DreamHost panel. And/or improve your queries.
