Fatal Error (2 posts)

    Hello. I am installing CBox for a new site, and I am receiving a fatal error about memory size exhausted every time I install the CBox theme and visit the dashboard. I will list the error below. The funny thing about it is that once I have installed the theme (and everything seems fine), I am able to do most things on the front end of the site (create a group, wiki, etc), but when I try to visit the backend for anything, I receive the error. It is a brand new install (I have installed and uninstalled it a couple of times), so I am not losing any content at this point. Also, i increased the php memory to 128 m, so I imagine it shouldn't be inadequate memory. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3072 bytes) in /home/theabbey/public_html/theabbey/wp-admin/includes/deprecated.php on line 1004

    The admin area actually requires more memory. WP tries to set it to 256MB:
    https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/3.5.2/wp-includes/default-constants.php#L27
    https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/3.5.2/wp-admin/admin.php#L108

    If you do not have enough memory on your host, perhaps try removing some plugins that you do not need. Also, try changing your theme to a more, lightweight one like Twenty Twelve.
