Cant install new plugins....

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,


i have been trying to install some new plugins in my wordpress blog and i keep getting the following error....


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home/elecsmar/public_html/wp-admin/includes/class-pclzip.php on line 2683


is this something todo with the permission on the files in the server or has something gone drastically wrong???


Any help would be fantastic :)


cheers rusty

How large is the zip file you are trying to upload? Based on the error message, it looks like your server may not have enough memory (to be clear, I'm not talking about disk space, but temporary memory) to unzip the zip file correctly. See http://drupal.org/node/76156 for a bit more explanation of the error.


You may be able to fix it by adding


ini_set('memory_limit', '32M');


to your theme's "functions.php" file. If that doesn't work (it may not), you either will have to unzip the plugin and upload it to the server manually, or talk to your web host about potentially increasing your memory limit.

heya peoples,


here is the reply i got from my isp :)




Thank you for your email.


Please follow these steps below:


1. Create a php.ini file in the directory where the settings need to be changed (wp-admin). This file can just be an empty text document.

2. Insert the configuration value you need to change. This is done ONE PER LINE.



memory_limit = 128M



3. Save the php.ini file and make sure it is in the appropriate directory where the permissions need to be changed.


You can verify that the settings have changed by running a PHP Info. To do this, create another empty file and call it info.php. Put the following into that file:

My initial impression is that this has nothing to do with the plugins (unless by accident) but more due to the fact that you are using a template theme, and the template is expecting a backlink back to WebsiteTemplates.bz to appear somewhere in the page. Adding the link back in, as the error message at the bottom of the page shows, will probably fix this error.
