Increase memory for WordPress

Have you come across a case where you update WordPress or a plugin and the site goes blank?

Shows nothing at all.

Often the issue can be the amount of memory WordPress can access because of the settings for the version and mode of PHP your running.

You should try increasing the memory allocation by adding the following code to your wp-config.php file.

Edit your wp-config.php file

Add this to the very bottom of that file.
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
Save the file and make sure it overwrites the current one and then check to see if the issue is resolved.

We have seen this happen most often when a large, powerful plugin is activated for the first time.

If you need help with this change or it does not fix the issue and you want help solving the problem please contact us.
