After installing or updating a plugin or theme you may start getting errors like “Allowed memory size of xxxx bytes exhausted”. This means for some reason you are exceeding the servers default memory setting.
We can usually fix memory exhausted errors by allocating more memory to your site. However you first should try to fix it by increasing the memory limit in WordPress.
To do this:
- locate the wp-config.php file in your WordPress root folder
- Open the file in a text editor
- On the second line after the <?php tag at the line define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);
- save the file and close the editor
If this doesn’t work for you, contact us and we’ll see if we can find the fault.
