Support » Fixing WordPress » insufficient memory to perform actions in WordPress

  • drickp


    I have attempted twice to upload new media, jpg, to media library and when doing so, my site hangs or freezes. (photo is 190KB which before has not been a problem)
    The tech says:

    “the error message you’re getting when uploading and posting media, and it appears that there is insufficient memory to perform certain actions in WordPress. The system allows a single PHP instance to utilize 68M of memory; while the latest version of WordPress requires at least 64M, certain plugins and themes will attempt to use more and may fail when they reach that limit. I recommend trying to disable some plugins and themes and attempting the upload again.”

    This just does not seem right for WordPress.
    Is anyone else having this problem? Is it a conflict of plugins, a problem with my server or what? I have no clue.
    btw.. in both cases, a tech was able to clear up the issues of my site inability to process its PHP queries. Site is now running and I have not attempted to process anything else nor disable any plugins….. please help.

    It maybe your host is restricting server resources.

    You can increase the limits in your php ini file if they allow it and deactivate all plugins, then try to upload.
