Cannot upload images in 2.3 (3 posts)

    I just upgraded to 2.3, and now when I try to upload an image it says this:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2344 bytes) in /home/tiffanyb/public_html/blog/wp-admin/includes/image.php on line 37

    Is this something on my server side, or is it a WP error?

    Thanks!

    Server. Need to increase the PHP memory.
    (by searching you can find some more detailed advices)

    Okay, then a follow-up question...

    (I did search, found mine is configured to 8 mb as well, and contacted the host about raising it).

    BUT - If the PHP Memory allocation is the maximum size for a given script to run, how can it be maxed out like that? Surely the "upload a photo" routine isn't using any more memory than it did yesterday...

    Thanks for helping me get my head around this! :)
