# Increasing the WordPress Memory Limit

Edit your wp-config.php file and enter the following:

define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );


WordPress memory can be different to the server – you need to set this regardless of server memory settings

If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini

If your line shows 32M try 64M:

memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 64M

Consult your hosting provider if none of the above works.
