  • Hi ,
    I am trying to run the instalation but getting error as below:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 73400320 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in /home/mwga0182/public_html/blog/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php on line 170

    what does this mean?
    thanks for any comments.

  • add this line to your wp-config.php

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    Hi Samboll , thanks for your comment but it did not work by that.
    any other comment?

    If your host allows to override php.ini setting then you can do it by placing custom php.ini in your blog root folder or you can increase the limit using .htaccess file. However, it depends on the server configuration. You can use either way to increase the value for PHP memory.

    For php.ini, you will need to increase the value for memory_limit

    For .htaccess, add the following code in your blog’s .htaccess file:

    php_value memory_limit 64M


    By increasing via .htaccess I’m having this a 500 Internal Error

    I just updated this:



    Edited: Fixed in wp settings.php

    My limit is 1000M to avoid more trouble :p
