Differences in methods to increase PHP and WordPress memory? (5 posts)

  1. What are the differences in the methods of increasing memory for php and WordPress? And what is preferred?

    I assume the best choice is increasing memory in php.ini, if that file is accessible. But after that: is increasing in .htaccess better than in wp-config.php? Or in wp-settings.php? Do server settings have any play in the matter?

    wp-settings.php is better

    May I ask, why is using the wp-settings.php better? I have used the wp-config.php method because I don't have access to the php.ini file. Would that be why?

    Is there any answer to this? I couldn't find a memory limit in wp-settings.php. So I don't know if I should add a line or go somewhere else. I have version 3.0.1 of wordPress.

    I am unable to automatically install any upgrades because I get the "Fatal error: Allowed memory size of ..." error. I have tried increasing memory limits all over the place ... none work! Apparently you can make your own php.ini file and put it into any folder ... but it still doesn't work (for me).
