  • I’m having the same issue. Anyone know what’s wrong or how to begin trouble shooting it?



    Check the error.log file under Apache.
    For me, PHP ran out of memory, and I increased it by going into the php.ini file.


    I am working on this issue right now. Does any know how to fix it?



    I’m having the same problem. I don’t know what to do.

    has anyone figured this out? it’s now happening to my website.

    This is happening to me as well – any updates

    Here ‘s an update. Ran into the same exact problem, and..

    It ‘s positive, it ‘s a memory issue. Just like what jjava00 said above, increase the memory_limit.

    – File to edit : php.ini
    – Line to edit : 232
    – string : memory_limit = 32MB.
    * If you can’t find it on line 232, search for this string memory_limit, you ‘ll get there for sure.

    Not sure if each hosting has the same default setup, but my default is 32MB. I increased it to 64MB.

    Not all of us have this privilege to edit this php.ini file. Including me. I ‘m on a shared hosting. So here ‘re what I did:

    1. I edit the php.ini of my local apache – set the memory_limit to 64MB. (I use appserv)
    2. Upload it to the root of my web dir (www or public_html or htdocs or whatever).
    .. and That ‘s it.

    The export.php script can then create the xml file we need to download – as now there ‘re enough memory resources to do so, and it can be downloaded. Problem solved.


    Do remember though, I removed it right after the file downloaded successfully, as I don’t wanna ruin things that have been set up there and running perfectly so far. Mission accomplished, so I removed it. Use it again later on when it ‘s needed.

    I never encourage you guys to leave it up there permanently.

    I’m having the same problem, but increasing the memory limit hasn’t helped. I’ve increased it bit by bit up to 256M and I’m still getting the same error!

    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I’m having this problem as well.

    Oddly, I have 2 installations of WP on the same host server (different DB, obviously), only one is returning a 404 when I try to export. BOTH installations are using less than 4mb for DB content, so changing the memory limit is pointless in this case.

    Other than the content, both installations are identical, so why would one export/generate correctly and not the other?
