Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal error: Out of memory

  • I’m currently using WP E-Commerce and when I tried to add variations to a product this happened:

    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 31719424) (tried to allocate 16 bytes) in /homepages/17/d280020283/htdocs/addicted2hair/wp-includes/meta.php on line 332

    I’ve tried increasing the memory limit (which is useless since it’s only a temporary fix) but I still can’t get it to work.

    Any help is welcomed! Thanks in advance!

    that sounds like a server side issue, you’ll need to take it up with them as you’re probably on shared hosting (like me when i got a similar message) and that only gives you a certain amount of system memory for your site to use.

    you could try and deactivate any non-essential plugins and perhaps delete all of the plugins you’re not using/never use…

    Increase the limit in wp-config.php:

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’96M’);

    Change the number to whatever limit you want.

    First of all thanks for the quick reply!

    That’s the the weird thing, I’m only using 2 plugins! I guess I have to give my hosting a call.

    @phe.le I’ve tried all that. But I’m still getting an error…

    It should work unless your host does not allow for increasing the PHP memory limit. I would recommend you to contact them.

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT… is one thing….
    second one thing which You may try is…
    add to .htaccess line:

    php_value memory_limit 64M

    If this doesnt work as well, contact Your hosting provider
