Support » Fixing WordPress » Fatal Memory Error

  • Resolved BrandRobins


    Okay, since updating to 2.1 I’ve had two problems. The first, my missing plugins page, I’ve already posted about.

    But now when I try to leave a comment, or when the blog goes to autosave a post, I get the following message:

    “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 52428800 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 253742 bytes) in /home/.echo/directory/ on line 326”

    Anyone have an idea what could be causing this?

  • I met the same problem!! Who can help me?

    Are you sure it says “52428800 bytes exhausted”? That’s a lot more that usually allowed for and almost certainly substantially more than a (normal) WP installation requires. Anyway, to increase the PHP memory limit, change the “memory_limit” variable in your “php.ini” file.

    If your WP is hosted, you’ll have to ask them to do it for you.

    I disabled Google Sitemaps plugin and everything is ok again(thank wordpress testers). Maybe you should check your plugins.

    Thanks guys, I’ll try both of those .

    Google Sitemaps may be trickier than it should, as the other problem I’m having is that I can’t get to my plugins page, but I’ll tinker and see what happens.

    So, what happens…???

    Which ever scripts have this problem, add the following at the start of the script just after <php


    You can use smaller or larger values. eg 12M, 20M etc.
