    I bought the Incarantion template yesterday but when adding new plugins my WordPress is giving me Fatal errors all over the place.

    Is there something in the template that’s asking a bit too much memory of the system ?

    This is the error:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1853353 bytes) in ..

    Kind regards, Paul Bakker


    Probably you need to increase the allocated php memory. Have a look at this article:

    You can find the wp-config.php on your server (you can use a ftp tool like filezilla). The file can be found in the main web directory which also contains the wp-content, wp-admin, etc. folder. I’d set the memory limit to 128M by using following code:

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


    Thanks for that quick reply.

    My host allows a maximum of 32MB for PHP.

    This amount was nearly exhausted after activating Dolly, BBpress, Broken-links and Google XML Sitemaps.

    Installing Yoast SEO was impossible and rendered the error.

    I removed BBPress and was able to install Yoast SEO.

    Googled on BBPress and that seems to be quite a memory hog, takes 4MB straight away.

    But that leaves 31MB to spend ! What’s taking up so much ?

    What are you using for the events part in the Incarantion theme ?


    Afaik since WP 3.4 WordPress itself requires up to 28M and probably 3.5 will require even more. The WP devs decided to increase the min. requirement to 40M – see:

    To be honest it doesn’t make much sense to try various configurations/setups because you’ll hit this limit over and over again (eg if you want to upload larger images or audio/video files) and in a few weeks you won’t be able to install WP3.5. If your current hoster can’t provide more memory it’s just a waste of money and I’d search for a new, more user friendly hoster.
