    I am trying to upgrade from 2.9.2 to wordpress 3.01

    This is the message I am getting…

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2966269 bytes) in /home/homeinsp/public_html/wp-includes/http.php on line 1363

    I upgraded the account size to 1000 M so the size of the hosting account should not be an issue.

    Thanks for any help,

    cheers Doug

    First, try deactivating all plugins before initiating the upgrade.

    If that doesn’t help, install and activate the Memory Bump plugin.

    And, if that still doesn’t help, here are four more ways to increase PHP’s memory allocation:

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
    2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    Increasing memory allocated to PHP
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    4. Talk to your host.

    you are a champion – I’ll give it a go.

    great the first option worked – just deactivated the plugins – thanks – hope it helps someone else as well
