I have been reading through the support threads, but it is still unclear exactly how to fix this memory issue. Let me explain my sites issue.
A while back recived an error stating that my 8Mb memory alloocation was not enough, so I aske my host to increase this to 16Mb for php and everything worked fine until today.
I decided to add a table from word into my post for today. Once I pressed save I got the following error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /xxx/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1250
Now Im not sure if the two are connected or it was just that I have too many processes running?!
I have emailed my host who tell me they can’t increase the 16mb anymore and it must be a technical issue?
I have published and deleted a number of posts, but can’t get rid of this error. If I ask it to save the post it does actually do it, but this error appears first and I have press back on browser? I have also tried using firefox as well but it makes no difference.
I dont know whether I need to
a) cut down the amount of plugins I have running
b) reduce number of posts I have on from page
c) reduce the number of pictures I have in a post
d) a combination of these
I am only 6 months into blogging and having this issue already, which does not bode well for the future. As I can only see expansion of my database and more traffic.
Any suggestions as to why this is happening?
