Increasing the WordPress Memory Limit

To address memory limit issues, there are two paths:

Edit your wp-config.php file #

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');

This code tells WordPress to increase the PHP memory limit to 256MB.

Once you are done, you need to save your changes and upload your wp-config.php file back to your server.

You can now visit your WordPress site and memory exhausted error should disappear now.

Or #

Edit your PHP.ini file #

If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
If your line shows 64M try 256M:

memory_limit = 256M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

Or #

Edit your .htaccess file #

If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 256M
