Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal Errors. Correlation between RAM and Plugins?

  • Hi guys, I’m quite new to the WordPress blogging scene. I recently had a blog hosted on a shared Linux server, and after upgrading to WordPress 3.0 and having installed and activated 7 plug-ins, I’m encountering this problem more and more often:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/mysite/public_html/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 14440

    I wish to know, is it because I have maxed out my share of the server’s RAM?

    Thank you in advance, guys. 🙂

    Thank you in advance.

    I did some in-depth searching and just found the answers. I was skimming on the surface before posting this.

    Sorry. 🙂

    Good job. 🙂

    Alright, I’ve contacted my host and the amount of memory allocated to me is 32Mb.

    And from the data I’ve collected from the NextGen Gallery:
    # Memory usage : 27.81 MByte
    # PHP Memory Limit : 32M
    # PHP Max Upload Size : 10M
    # PHP Max Post Size : 8M

    Is there anyway for me to change without upgrading my hosting package? I’ve tried changing my wp-config or my wp-settings or even the htaccess file without any success.

    Providing all plugins that you are using are running correctly and efficiently, and short of rewriting plugins to use less memory,

    You can try running something like WP Super Cache or Hyper Cache.
    This should bring down the load. It might still be tight on the backend, it is hard to tell off the bat.

    You could look at other ways to do the same thing. For example do you need the NetGen Gallery to do what your doing? If for example you are just uploading 4 images, it might be overkill to use a plugin for this.
    And this could go for more plugins as well.

    Depending on your setup, the amount of visitors, and the type of content you run on your site, it might be a good idea to talk to your webhost/ or look at others to upgrade your package.

    It is difficult to tell from a distance, but I hope this points you in the right direction.
