  • Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 113 bytes) in /home/beerpuls/public_html/testing/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/ObjectCache.php on line 230

    I get this error when accessing one of my custom post type admin “edit” pages that loads 36,000 posts. It uses up a lot of memory for that one request and takes 18-20 sec. to load but at least I can load it without this plugin activcated.

    No matter how I tweak the settings, I still get the error.

  • You need to increase the memory limit in your php.ini file. It’s normally set to 32mb. depending on the type of host you have try upping the RAM to 100mb.

    I can load the page without this plugin enabled so you’re saying that I need to up the setting (currently 240mb on 768mb RAM server) to make it load with this plugin enabled?

    I don’t see why W3TC should be causing the problem, other than that you might be minifying or caching a plugin that is causing a problem. Try disabling all plugins and then see if the problem goes away. Then re-enable one plugin at a time, hopefully you can find the cause.

    I upped it to 400 and still no luck. Maybe there is a setting in W3 Total Cache plugin files that is overriding my Apache php.ini settings?

    Disabled all other plugins and no change. I discovered the 256mb memory limit in wp-admin which corresponds to the error message above. The only solutions are to optimize the query, increase the wp-admin memory limit or use a different caching plugin. Two of those require modifying the core code but I think it’s ok where it’s just a small backend tweak. I think that’s less of a hassle than finding another plugin that works like super cache, caches db queries and utilizes APC like this one does and configuring it.

    I had the same issue upon installing the plugin.

    So I had already installed the plug-in on one site and that went just fine.

    Yesterday I installed the w3 total cache plugin on a different site and pressed activate, I then couldn’t reach wp=admin but got the ‘Fatal error: Allowed memory size’ error.

    Increasing the memory available in wp-config fixed the issue but it’s definetely and issue with this plugin and probably a cross-interaction with other plugings

    For me, I have 36,000 posts in one of my custom post types and WordPress was loading them all at once. By saving a bookmark to my bookmarks toolbar with a search result (so that I don’t have to click to the post type main edit screen), I don’t have the problem anymore.

    W3TC doesn’t appear to be able to handle massive admin requests.

    And WordPress doesn’t appear to be able to handle massive post tables.
