Support » Fixing WordPress » fatal error allowed memory size issue, wordpress mostly broken now

    *looong sigh*

    So I am experiencing the now the “Fatal error: Allowed memory size…” error which there are already many threads for and many posts on the internet for. None of the solutions offered in any of the posts are working for me.

    I’ve always had trouble getting WP automatic update to work. So, today, sometime during the automatic upgrade process I begin to get this error.

    I now get this error when I try to edit / view posts, attempt to successfully update automatically again. In addition to this, my wp-admin interface is botched up. The sidebar menu loads with just blank space to right and I have to scroll down a whole to page see what would normally be to the right of the sidebar.

    Of the proposed solutions in other threads, nothing works. And I really don’t believe increasing the wp memory allocation is a “real” solution anyways.

    Any help would be appreciated since I took a whole day off from work today to work on my site and now I am completely unable to do anything productive 🙁

    Try contacting your hosts about this. In the meantime, please stick to just the one topic…



    My site is hosted on my own VPS which I have full root access to (ssh, whm/cpanel). I can open a request ticket but if it’s related to wordpress they generally are not obligated since it is a “3rd party script”. I don’t believe this is a server or hosting issue at all. I think it’s likely a WordPress problem since WordPress broke in the middle of automatic update running. From the point of a non-logged in user visiting the site – everything functions normally.

    The only other thing I can think of is trying go thru the manual update steps, thinking perhaps some of the core files got messed up during a botched automatic update.
