iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)
Unable to create Database Backup (error message) (2 posts)

    I just installed the Better WP Security plug-in and whenever I try to create a database backup, I get this error message:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 128 bytes) in /home/xxx/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1539

    I am not sure what to do about this. Can someone please let me know what I should do?

    I'm also concerned that if I uninstall this plug-in that it will leave a bunch of code behind. Is there a way of uninstalling it without having code left behind in the .htaccess file, etc.?

    This most likely has to do with your available PHP RAM on your server. Talk with your host whether you can up the limit.
