In this tutorial you will learn how to increase the memory limit for your WordPress site. Usually the reason you want to do this is because a plugin or a theme is telling you that you need a higher memory limit for it to function properly.

Open your WordPress website’s wp-config file in cpanel or via FT. Paste the code below into it. You can paste it anywhere above where it says “Stop Editing. Happy Blogging”.

define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);

The only thing you need to change in the snippet above is the ’64’. You can make that number whatever your plugin or theme is requesting. Usually it would be 64, 96, 128, or 256. I’ve never seen anything WordPress plugins or themes require more than 256.

Make sure you keep the “M” in the there. It tells WordPress that it’s megabytes.

If this change doesn’t fix the error then your host may be capping the WordPress PHP memory limit. Many hosts cap it at 8 megabytes, which isn’t much.

So that is how to increase WordPress PHP memory limit on your WordPress site.

Oh, one more thing. When you do a WordPress memory increase via the wp-config.php file the memory increase is only valid for that one website.
