WordPress is growing and growing, with the growing of WordPress the demand of memory is also growing. The standard use is WordPress 32MByte (see
settings.php ), which is not even provided by every hoster today. This is a problem – therefore: Lovely Hoster, give users more memory!
But also to use the memory, it requires a small syntax extension in the configuration of WordPress.
To have a quick overview about the demand: Use the Plugin for WordPress WP-Memory-Usage by Alex Rabe …
… or the more extensive version of an analysis with the Plugin WordPress System Health by Heiko Rabe.
Thus, it provides the analysis of blogs and a quick way to see the problems at a customers blog or project of your own. This WordPress Plugin Health System will not only provide information on the status of WordPress, but will also provide information on important configuration settings, supply information on the state of the database and also the tables and information about PHP. In each mode you can add various details, which provide a lot of information to the WordPress experts about the system without the need to investigate the individual Settings, the PHP and the database information.
It is recommended when working with WordPress to increase memory, as long the host permits. This requires the expansion of
wp-config.php; the best way is to do it in steps in order to check the possibilities of the host.
// more memory define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M'); // even more memory define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M'); // a good deal more memory ;-) define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
Will you get a white page as return, then it was too much and it goes back down to 32 MByte. Good luck.
