Support » Installing WordPress » Another "Memory exhausted" error

  • Resolved Kthoelen


    Hi all,

    Yesterday I tried updating WP to 3.4.2. However, it kept going on (for like 1.5 h) and I decided to kill it. Since then, my website is still working (frontend), I can still log in to WP, but then I get the following error: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 262144 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 88 bytes) in /home/guk/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 516 and that’s all I see from the WP backend

    I’ve searched on these fora a bit and I found some possible hacks/tricks to solve this problem, but it still won’t work.

    What I’ve done so far:
    * in WP-config.php added define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT','64M');
    * created a php.ini file with memory_limit = 64M ;
    * in .htaccess added php_value memory_limit 64M
    * in cache.php (within wp-includes) added ini_set('memory_limit','64M');

    That’s all the help I could find here on the fora, but it’s still broken. Any ideas? I would be very grateful 🙂

    Hi Kthoelen,

    When I experienced this issue in the past, I found that I had too many plug-ins activated so the first thing I did was I deactivated some of them. It got rid of the error for the time being until we eventually found out that we needed to upgrade our hosting package.

    Thanks; it got solved in another way 🙂
