Support » Fixing WordPress » Exceeding Memory Limit While Testing out theme

  • Resolved Jacob Martella


    So I’m trying to create my own theme. It’s the first time I’m doing this, and I’m fairly new to code, but I’m picking up on it pretty quick.

    Anyway, I downloaded XAMPP to test the theme on the localhost; however, when I upload the theme to the test site and activate it, I get this:

    “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261904 bytes) in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-includes\plugin.php on line 69”

    I’ve tried increasing the memory limit and all, but nothing works.

    Any help before it drives me insane?

  • Here is a list of things I tried with one that worked for me. It may not work for every site, but it is worth a try.

    Create php.ini and php5.ini files on your local machine with the contents shown. Use ftp or a file manager from your hosting service to upload them to the wp-admin folder.

    Unfortunately, nothing worked for me. That being said, I did rush through writing the code for the theme. I got a little antsy. So, it could also be a problem within the theme it’s self. I uploaded a theme I’ve used in the past and it worked perfectly. I’m going back through and rewriting everything at a slower pace and trying to get everything right. If anyone would like to help, PM me.

    Just for the record, I’m using XAMPP for localhost.
