  • Could try and deactivate one or more plugins, but need to increase memory available to PHP:
    Methods for increasing the amount of memory a PHP script may consume

    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:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    4. Talk to your host.

    I’ve tried the methods listed but no success, any other suggestions??

    Now try method #4 and ask your hosting provider to temporarily increase PHP’s memory allocation on your account. Keep in mind that most decent hosting providers allocate 32 MB to PHP under each account, and most decent hosting providers allow users to temporarily increase the memory allocation. If your hosting provider won’t accommodate you, perhaps it’s time to find a new hosting provider.

    If you need more assistance, please start your own topic.



    OK support tells me I have to create the file in your Step 1 as well as change the ht.accss.

    Could you tell me what the whole php-ini code looks like and is it just a notepad file called PHP.ini (ext: ini)?
