Allowed Memory Size EXHAUSTED?! (4 posts)

    Okay, I have no idea what has happened.
    Everytime I log into wordpress admin, I see this
    "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 77824 bytes) in /home/insanity/public_html/wp-admin/menu-header.php on line 70"

    Now, the things i've bold tend to change. So it's not just one file. I did not edit any files before this, nor did I upload any.

    I also checked my Cpanel and I'm not running out of space. I checked that just to make sure.

    I am REALLY confused as to why this happened. I don't even fully understand what it means. I didn't know WP had a memory size?

    Out of space? The message is about memory not file sizes. Memory is used by the WordPress, a PHP application to run on the server.

    And it looks like you have the default 8MB configured. If you search for memory exhausted you will find many helpful posts, or look at the memory tag http://wordpress.org/tags/memory

    If you describe what operation you are doing when you see this problem, someone may have a more detailed answer.

    A plugin may be causing the problem.

    Okay, where would I edit the 8MB, to make it more?
    And I'm going to MANAGE > PAGES

    I had this error. I fixed it once and for all. I created a .htaccess file and put this into it. Then I uploaded it to my root wordpress directory. voila.

    php_value memory_limit 32M
