Increasing PHP Memory Limit

To increase the PHP Memory Limit do the following:

Method 1: Increasing Memory Limit In wp-config.php File

Step 1: Locate the wp-config.php file inside the root of your WordPress installation (located in the same folder as your /wp-content/ and /wp-admin/ directories) using an FTP client or file manager in your web hosting control panel (if you’re not sure how to do this, ignore the steps below and contact your web host who can do this for you).

Step 2: Paste this code in your wp-config.php file just before the line that says “That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging.”:

define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128MB' );

Step 3: Now save the file.

Note: If this solution does not work then this means your web hosting service provider does not allow WordPress to increase PHP memory limit. You will need to ask your web host to increase this limit for you.


Method 2: Increasing Memory Limit In php.in File

Step 1: Locate the php.ini file inside the /wp-admin directory using an FTP client or file manager in your web hosting control panel (if you’re not sure how to do this, ignore the steps below and contact your web host who can do this for you).

Step 2: Paste this code in  your .php.ini file:

memory_limit 64M;

Method 3: Increasing Memory Limit In .htaccess File

Step 1: Locate the .htaccess file inside the root of your WordPress installation (located in the same folder as your /wp-content/ and /wp-admin/ directories) using an FTP client or file manager in your web hosting control panel (if you can’t find it see why you can’t find the .htaccess file and how to find it or if you’re not sure how to do this, ignore the steps below and contact your web host who can do this for you).

Step 2: Paste this code in your .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 64M

Step 3: Now save the file.

Note: If you encounter any errors while trying to set the memory limit using these two methods then it means your hosting provider has locked this setting and you will have to contact them to increase this limit.
