    Ok, I'll explain first - I'm very new to WordPress, I have been using it for around a month.

    I set up my website but then an hour ago it wouldn't load.
    I'm getting this error message "Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 20709376) (tried to allocate 72 bytes) in /home/divinele/public_html/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 73"

    I have honestly no idea what to do. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Note: I have contacted my Host just incase it's something on there side. Unfortunately, that could take upto 48 hours to get a message back from them.

    Any help to solve this would be greatly appreciated.

    While using this information:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

    Will have WordPress *try* to use a higher memory limit, that will not help since its your PHP configuration on your hosting server that is set to 20MB of memory - so what you need to do is check if you have access to editing your php.ini to increase the limit.

    This doc here: http://www.hostucan.com/webmaster-tutorials/increase-php-memory-limit

    Explains that you open the php.ini (if you have access to it) and find the memory_limit = line and set it to something a bit larger, 32MB would be good.

    Unfortunately it's more then likely you do not have access to the php.ini so you would have to wait until your hosting company fixes it for you, if they are unable to give you more then you need to move your hosting to a better company.
