    I'm trying to update to 3.0.3 but I keep getting this error. I have deleted all of the plugins that are not activated.

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.3.zip…
    Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 30670848) (tried to allocate 2975715 bytes) in /homepages/3/d205811546/htdocs/wordpress/wp-includes/class-http.php on line 1408

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a server issue rather than a WP issue. I think that at this point the installation is trying to open files and has run out of resources.

    Try downloading the zip file to a local PC and uploading the files to your server rather than use the servers resources to unzip the file.

    You don't mention what your current version of WP is, and some older versions may require a phased uipdate.

    However, try a manual version update first, and keep your files and database backups handy.

    Try increasing the memory available to PHP:
