Support » Fixing WordPress » greymatter.php breaking my dashboard after recently importing blog

  • I have been having all sorts of memory issues with wordpress hosted on laughing squid on their (rackspace) cloud service.

    most recently I have a broken dashboard, error in the logs is:

    “[28-Dec-2009 16:00:48] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /mnt/stor1-wc1-dfw1/380423/449347/ on line 170”

    I have recently deleted a bunch of spam comments from the imported material I had brought over, everything was working ok, now not so.

    Usually I can resolve these issues by switching off all my plugins, and then doing what I have to and reactivating, but this is a hassle, it means downtime for my site, and reentering api keys and such.

    Can someone tell me what I can do to tweak the memory managment?

    Is it a Wp problem or is it LaughingSquid/Rackspace?

    Is there anything I can do?

    I have had about 20 fatal errors related to memory in the last 2 days alone!

    I am running wptouch, reccommended reading, lifestream, twitter widgets, akismet and stats, is 6 plugins too much to ask?

    any help would be deeply appreciated 🙂

  • I’ve never had this problem with WordPress, but I did with another program I was working on recently. That fatal error about memory had to do with the amount of memory my host allowed by default for the site to use and in order to up that limit I had to make an adjustment to the php.ini file.

    This might help:

    I’m having the same errors in ExpressionEngine. Rackspace Cloud memory_limit is set to 32mb, I think we need to find out if we can up it to 64mb.

    I solved the problem by adding the following lines to my .htaccess file:

    # Increase php memory_limit
    php_value memory_limit 64M

    good luck.
