What is the optimum PHP memory for WooCommerce?
And how should I apply it?
If I can persuade my host to change the PHP.ini file, how much should I ask him to increase the memory limit to? 128MB? 256MB?
Is there a downside to allocating more memory either for me or my host?
Also, even if I can get my host to increase the PHP.ini memory, should I also amend my wp-config.php file by adding, say:
Should this be lower than the PHP.ini file memory size?
Here is the background to my question:
I have a WordPress / WooCommerce site using the Mystile theme.
I'm currently getting worrying dashboard messages saying:
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 28049408) (tried to allocate 1245184 bytes) in /home/n/o/notary/public_html/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 5416
and also am unable to use 2 plugins because of 'out of memory' messages.
I'm not sure if any of this relates to WooCommerce but I read somewhere that WooCommerce often requires more memory. I think I'm going to have to change host but I need to know exactly what I should be asking for first.
