    -Try increasing memory available for php.

    – Also, review this codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress

    – What version of WP are you trying to update to 3.5.1?

    cannot find this line define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);

    You need to define it in your wp-config.php

    Have you reviewed the link I provided in my previous reply?
    Here is again: increasing memory available for php.

    he might need to do that in php.ini, also it might not work if server admin/hosting company, doesn’t allow it.

    it might not work if server admin/hosting company, doesn’t allow it.

    This is explained in the codex link as well.

    (Apologies if this muddys up this thread)

    Is anyone else surprised that he would run out of memory on such a simple operation? The default is 8M, which is far far more than enough.

    Even in shared hosting environments (with the exception of GoDaddy which is just godawful), I have rarely seen this.

    I’m willing to bet you have a whole lot of PHP modules installed that you probably don’t need. If you have a chance, I’d love to see a phpinfo() page as well as the output off
    free -m

    Just some thoughts, feel free to ignore and/or prove me wrong. 🙂

    Hi,

    I am also receiving this error on some of my pages and seems like I cannot edit any of the pages in “Visual” view:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/designpo/public_html/wp-includes/class-wp-editor.php on line 226

    Not sure whats going on. I’m hoping when I fix the memory allocation it would all work as normal?

    Thanks,

    Adrian
