I was going crazy with this.

I got the next message:

Allowed memory size of 262144 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24576 bytes)

TODO LIST

Check phpinfo(), got the right php.ini route and edit it. Change memory_limit to

memory_limit = 128M

Make sure the value memory_limit changes con phpinfo() with the result:

memory_limit    128MB   128MB

Check .htaccess and added (not needed)

php_value memory_limit 128M

And also to change it via php like so (before error line):

ini_set('memory_limit','128M');

It says everywhere that memory is set to 128M, but still get that error?

The error is in Swift library (library for sending emails), in abstractSmtpTransport.php, so it's not my code int's suposed to work.

Any ideas???

Edit: Yes, the previous was done restarting apache.

EDIT 2: @patrick, added that but nothing was echoed

Tryed with lower value, 28M int every file, restarted apache, same error (phpinfo showed new value)

tried with -1, restarting, and same error.

EDIT 3: isn't it weird that allowed memory is bigger than allocated memory? (despite the fact that allowed memory size is way below real allowed memory asigned)

I see my problem is a little bit different from yours, but I'll post this answer in case it helps someone else. I was using MB as shorthand instead of M when defining my memory_limit, and php was silently ignoring it. I changed it to an integer (in bytes) and the problem was solved.

My php.ini changed as follows: memory_limit = 512MB to memory_limit = 536870912. This fixed my problem. Hope it helps with someone else's! You can read up on php's shorthand here.

Good luck!

Edit

As Yaodong points out, you can just as easily use the correct shorthand, "M", instead of using byte values. I changed mine to byte values for debugging purposes and then didn't bother to change it back.

The value of 262,144 bytes is the key to the diagnosis. You'll see this magic number pop up in PHP questions all over the place. Why? Because that is the value PHP will end up with as its memory limit if you attempt to update the limit with a value it can't use. An empty string will produce this memory limit, as will an incorrect unit notation like '128MB' instead of the correct '128M'.

262,144 bytes is exactly 256 Kibibytes. Why PHP runs home to that value when it gets confused is beyond me.

isn't it weird that allowed memory is bigger than allocated memory?

The allocated amount shown is just the most recent allocation attempt, the one that ran afoul of the memory limit. See Allowed memory size in PHP when allocating less.

4096M = 4294967296

I was trying to up the limit Wordpress sets on media uploads. I followed advice from some blog I’m not going to mention to raise the limit from 64MB to 2GB.

I did the following:

Created a (php.ini) file in WP ADMIN with the following integers:

upload_max_filesize = 2000MB
post_max_size = 2100MV
memory_limit = 2300MB

I immediately received this error when trying to log into my Wordpress dashboard to check if it worked:

"Allowed memory size of 262144 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24576 bytes)"

The above information in this chain helped me tremendously. (Stack usually does BTW)

I modified the PHP.ini file to the following:

upload_max_filesize = 2000M
post_max_size = 2100M
memory_limit = 536870912M

The major difference was only use M, not MB, and set that memory limit high.

As soon as I saved the changed the PHP.ini file, I saved it, went to login again and the login screen reappeared.

I went in and checked media uploads, ands bang:

Image showing twordpress media folder "Add New" box, with limits stated as "MAXIMUM UPLOAD FILE SIZE: 2 GB"

I haven't restarted Apache yet… but all looks good.

Thanks everyone.

memory size of 12345678 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 2345678 bytes) in /home/your-username/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on  Hi there, I've cleared cache several times, reloaded the plugin from GPM after removing it with an 'rm -rf', no change. I will triple check, but I'm seeing this on the production server as well, I didn't do a lot of testing up there because I don't make a habit of such things, but I'll confirm.

Comments
  • just to double check - you restarted apache after the changes, right?
  • what if you try a lower value, say 1M?
  • Some killing recursion?
  • Also, you updated the right config files, right? You will find similar ini files in apache, php etc
  • Try to give memory limit to -1 (maximum) if you still get the same error that means something definitely goes wrong in code. May be a infinite loop.
  • +1. I couldn't do +10. How many people must this have caught out over the years? PHP needs to be a little more user friendly
  • use M, not MB
  • +1 for using M instead of MB or bytes. Much more readable and you don't have to use any converter just to change the limit.
  • @WanderingZombie PHP must die already, who the hell uses M for MB? Sorry, it has been more than a year since you posted, but I cannot keep it in. + Their comment is gives an example (128MB), very thankful indeed.
  • Yeah, the real problem is that their example itself is invalid!
  • Thanks! Finally, an answer why the allowed is bigger than allocated. This was driving me nuts.
  • Nope, not any ini set in my code, only the one i'm using to try to raise it up, without success
  • I often see people setting the Memory limit very high, without knowing which knock on effect this has on your server. If you have 16 gigs of ram, with a 2 Gig Memory limit you are allowing 8 processes(in theory) to max out your memory usage if you should run into a memory leak, for example. Your error indicates that your limit of 256 KB was exhausted with ~24KB, so setting your memory_limit to 2 Gig is WAY too high. A limit of 384K would work here, or even a HIGH value of 4 Meg would work in your case. That leaves you 4000 Apache processes to fit into your 16 Gigs of RAM, rather than 8.
