Support » Plugins » Memory exhausted in 2.1.3

  • Hello, i have a full working 2.0.x wp installation on my hoster and i’m trying to figure out if i can migrate to wp 2.1.* using a local backup.

    Each time i activate a plugin more complex that cc-configurator, i get this message:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 58368 bytes) in /home/ashura/Dev/Web/Wordpress/wordpress/wp-admin/menu.php on line 40

    I don’t think rising the mem limit could help me (i mean, using more than 8meg for a single script is somehow insane…).

    I’m using php daily, locally, with drupal, joomla and other test cms that should be “heavier” than wordpress, so i think the error is not strictly relate with my lamp installation.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Yes, certain queries, certain plugins, can easily cause the memory size to grow beyond 8MB. I think I pushed for 32 on my current site just to not worry about it.

    Some of it has to do with what the plugins are doing and how they do it, and what content you have on your site.

    But, definitely just ask you host to increase your max php mem size, pick a number (20M?), even if it’s just temporary.


    Hola. i am having the same problem, but for my localized wordpress. i use XAMPP to run it. How do i increase the mem size?
