    Help! I need to delete lots of posts in a category (about 2000).

    the "Bulk Delete" plugin doesn't work and gives this error message:

    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 62914560) (tried to allocate 44 bytes) in /home/kahlua/public_html/all-about-ferrets.net/wp-settings.php on line 288

    I can't get a response from the plugin author.

    "Mass Post manager" doesn't work either. It proudly proclaims that it has moved/deleted posts between/from categories but actually doesn't do anything.

    I have stripped back the theme to the WP default, but still no good.


    Thanks :)

    That could be you need more memory allocated to PHP. Methods for increasing the amount of memory a PHP script may consume

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

    2. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M

    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

    4. Talk to your host.
