Support » Fixing WordPress » My provider won’t give me more than 32 Mb, what can I do?

  • I tried everything: editing the file “settings”, editing the file “config”, but nothing, always the “memory exhausted” error. I even tried to deactivate all the plugins, stil nothing. So I called my provider to ask him to raise the memory limit, but he told me it’s not possible. What can I do then? Maybe backup and restore WordPress? Please help 🙁

  • 32MB of what? Disk space? Bandwidth?

    The php says “memory_limit”… It’s not the disk space for sure.

    Here’s a link to the php: here

    All I can think of is that if your host is saying you can’t have more memory and your site won’t run without it, you may need to switch hosts. I don’t think there is anything anyone here can do to help if it is a hosting configuration issue.

    But this is not possible! I mean, the site is still in development, how could I have exhausted the memory already? Is there any way to check the amount of memory my components (plugins e co.) are using? Can’t I backup and then restore to “erase” the memory leacks?

    Run <?php echo phpinfo(); ?> it will tell you how much memory limit you are allowed…

    To keep track of your PHP memory usage try using the TPC! Memory Usage plugin. Usually that occurs when you’re running a lot of plugins… You can try uninstalling some that you’re not using or don’t need.

    I know recommending another plugin to help decrease your memory usage is counter-intuitive… but it will at least help you figure out where you are at. With TPC! Memory Usage running, you can temporarily delete all of your other plugins and it’ll give you a good idea of how high above the baseline you are.

    Ok, that’s strange: out of panic I reinstalled wordpress (this time without italian translation), erasing everything (no biggy, I was still experimenting). This means everything was clear and new. I installed wp-memory plugin and I found out I was already using around 11 mb of memory! WordPress team really should do something about this… Right after I tried again to upload a bunch of photos, and the error (memory exhausted) showed up again! But I just let all the photos to upload anyway, and I found out that the photos were in the media library, despite the fact that wordpress gave me error for every photo.
    Can someone explain what’s going on? I’m really confused 🙁
