  • Apparently the php.ini default of 8MB for Max Mem doesn’t go as far as it used to…

    So, you’ll want to configure your PHP installation to have a larger amount.

    yes I think so

    memory_limit 8M 8M

    but unfortunately, there are no *.ini file to configure ..

    so is there a way to configur it ?

    thx for help


    WordPress doesn’t have any .ini files, that is true.

    However, PHP does — and PHP is where your issue lies. PHP has a php.ini configuration file.

    in php5 folder I found file named “php.ini-recommended”
    I found in it these lines

    max_execution_time = 30     ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
    max_input_time = 60	; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
    memory_limit = 128M      ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)

    can it help me cuz I didn’t find any other php.ini files , Also I read b4 that htaccess. file can help in this problem , any idea ?


    Perhaps I’m confused?

    That shows:

    memory_limit = 128M

    However, in your initial post, the memory_limit (from the error) is 8MB.

    In your first reply to me, you showed this line:

    memory_limit 8M 8M

    Where was that found?

    hmmm I found it in “PHP Information Version 5.2.1 “
    exactly in

    PHP Core


    I found how to solve this problem , we can delete the php5 folder and upgrade to the last version of php “5.2.3”
    it will work well .. but I still need to know how to solve with the “5.2.1” version 😀

    any ideas ?
