Exclamation httpd crash after successful start

I have a CentOS 5.2 (fully up to date) box running dekiwiki.

So naturally its a typical LAMP setup.

Just recently I needed to upload a file larger then the preset 2m limit so i had to edit /etc/php.ini

memory_limit = 32     ;
post_max_size = 16M
upload_max_filesize = 8M
These are the new values.

Then I reloaded apache

After that i was unable to access my site.
I tried to stop the httpd deamon but it faild
when i started it however it says
Starting httpd:          [ OK ]
then when i run
ps aux | grep httpd
ps -ef | grep httpd
apache/httpd does not show up (with the exception of the actual grep command)

looking in /var/log/http/error_log i see:
[Thu Oct 30 16:48:29 2008] [notice] suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: /usr/sbin/suexec)
[Thu Oct 30 16:48:30 2008] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Thu Oct 30 16:48:30 2008] [notice] Digest: done
Allowed memory size of 32 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 9 bytes)
I really need to get this back up and running ASAP so any help or clues would be wonderful.

I'll give you one clue: 32 bytes is not a lot of memory.

I think you meant 32M.
