I need you help here. After updating to WordPress 4.4 locally all was fine ... but after updating on my server I get the following error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8193 bytes) in /home/proondernemer/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4461

Anyone know how to fix this error?

I tryed to add this code to wp-config:

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

And I tried to add this code to my htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 64M

Thank you for your support.

This is a memory issue and can be handled from the wp-config.php file if the server allows.

From what I see you have tried

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

which takes care of the front end, but if you still have memory issue in the admin end, then try

define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M' );

Please note, this has to be put before wp-settings.php inclusion.

For a more detailed information check the codex here.


This error arise just because of memory issue, try to increase the memory

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

hope it will work fine
