WordPress out of memory error

by Stephen Hobley on August 13, 2009

Hmmmm, so after a long period of flawless service, my copy of WordPress has started to run out of memory.

When I try to upload images I get “Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2144 bytes) in /blog/wp-admin/includes/image.php on line 147”

It looks like the amount of memory allocated to PHP has been overrun, I’m still looking into how to either fix it, or allocate some more memory.

Which is a shame, as I’ve got a bunch of new stuff to post about…

Like my new Vocoder build.

UPDATE: I added a line to the .htaccess in the root of the website to increase the memory allocated to PHP to 64Mb – this seems to have fixed the problem (for now).
