Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal Error

  • I get a Fatal Error message when I try to access my admin page. My host company instructed me to ad a php.ini file to my cgi bin files and delete the php.coalesced.ini. They directed me to allocate 64 megs memory and 2048 buffer. I did this and still get the same error message. I am not sure if I correctly added the file. I simply copied and pasted the php.coalesced.ini and named it php.ini after changing the memory and buffer. I have googled this issue and found many solutions and many frustrations. Right now I am frustrated. Does anyone know how to fix this? Most appreciatively, Kevin

  • php.ini typically resides in the root of the host folder (not cgi-bin)…go to for additional instructions (or get a better web host/host plan/support personnel)

    This works for me with WP3.4.2 on a host that allows an ini file (you are better advised to review that php5.3+ is active on the server):

    register_globals = off
    allow_url_fopen = off
    expose_php = Off
    max_input_time = 30
    max_execution_time = 30
    file_uploads = on
    upload_max_filesize = 64M
    post_max_size = 64m
    variables_order = "EGPCS"
    extension_dir = ./
    upload_tmp_dir = /tmp
    precision = 12
    zlib.output_compression = off
    memory_limit = 64M
    SMTP = ****ASK HOST***

    Each variable requires host support….to check your php env create a file…this UTF-8 plain text only file contains only:

    <? phpinfo(); ?>

    Load in root of web host account and review in browser…
