Support » Plugin: The Events Calendar » Fatal Out of Memory Error on Image Upload

  • Resolved sassymonkey


    I believe this is a theme problem, but am unsure. I’m having a consistent image upload problem when using Impreza theme ( and The Events Calendar (also, the same problem occurs when using Event Organizer instead).

    I get an error whenever I upload medium to large-sized jpegs (but not when uploading small images like icon pngs or jpegs):

    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 25165824) (tried to allocate 4096 bytes) in /homepages/39/d357900950/htdocs/wp-includes/media.php on line 1288

    I tried default themes with either of the events plugin activated and have no problems. I also tried increasing memory allocation in wp-config file without success:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');

    I’m running WP 3.8.1 with Impreza 1.2.2 on PHP 5.5 host (1and1). Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    Site with the problem:

    One issue to note is that, for security purposes, I’ve modified both the MySQL table prefixes and the name of the wp-content folder.

  • I forgot to mention that I disabled all other plugins except the calendar and still had the same problem.

    I finally found a solution: I was trying a php.ini file at the root and in the wp-includes folder since that was the path mentioned in the error. Neither worked.

    Then I placed the php.ini file in the wp-admin folder and that worked, but only for small to medium sized images.

    I still can’t upload a large image such as a 2.5MB jpg.

    Though it’s low priority since the site shouldn’t use images that large anyway, any ideas on how to allow large images is much appreciated.

    That sounds like a hosting issue and really a question to pose to your hosting service provider (or on a more general forum that this one, which is specifically for issues with The Events Calendar).

    Glad you found a solution, though 🙂
