WordPress memory and PHP.ini problems?

December 8th, 2012

Had some issues with the ‘fatal error’ and ‘Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted’ on wordpress when I’ve been installing various plugins. I tried upping the memory limit in the config.php file but it didn’t make a difference.

My hosting provider gave me some tips so I added a php.ini file to my Root directory. It worked!

This is what i added.

This goes in the top line of your .htaccess file (changing ‘yourusername’ to yours)..

suPHP_ConfigPath /home/yourusername/public_html

and then add these lines to a php.ini file using notepad or something similar (anything after the ; is ignored and can be used as reference text).

memory_limit = 64M ; anything up to 128M
upload_max_filesize = 20M ; this can be increased if required
post_max_size = 20M ; this can be increased if required
